XmlSerializer

 

UPDATE: Starting in Beta 13 and above, we recommend you to use the new DataContractSerializer instead of the XmlSerializer.

 

Tutorial

Please use the following code to serialize an object with the XmlSerializer:

var serializer = new XmlSerializer(typeof(ClassToSerialize));
var stream = new MemoryStream(); serializer.Serialize(stream, _classToSerialize);
stream.Seek(0, SeekOrigin.Begin);
var reader = new StreamReader(stream);
var serializedXml = reader.ReadToEnd();

Please use the following code to deserialize an object with the XmlSerializer:

var deserializer = new XmlSerializer(typeof(ClassToSerialize));
var memoryStream = new MemoryStream(Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(serializedXml));
var xmlReader = XmlReader.Create(memoryStream);
ClassToSerialize deserializedObject = (ClassToSerialize)deserializer.Deserialize(xmlReader);

Example of serializable class:

[DataContract]
public class ClassToSerialize
{
    public string TextField { get; set; }
    public DateTime DateField { get; set; }
    public Guid GuidField { get; set; }
    public bool BooleanField { get; set; }
}
