SerializationInfo

Synopsis

SerializationInfo objects are used by classes that customize serialization behavior. The data required for each member is the name of the member, its type, and its value. Within a class’s ISerializable.GetObjectData() block, the AddValue() method is used to add member data. Deserialization is defined within a deserialization constructor (see ISerializable). It is specified by retrieving member data with GetValue(), or one of the many other Get* methods, and assigning the data to the appropriate members.
