Remarks

Creating the XmlAttributes is part of a process that overrides the default way the XmlSerializer serializes class instances. For example, suppose you want to serialize an object that is created from a DLL that has an inaccessible source. By using the XmlAttributeOverrides, you can augment or otherwise control how the object is serialized.

The members of the XmlAttributes class correspond directly to a family of attribute classes that control serialization. For example, the XmlText property must be set to an XmlTextAttribute, which allows you to override serialization of a field or property by instructing the XmlSerializer to serialize the property value as XML text. For a complete list of attributes that control serialization, see the XmlSerializer.
