System.Runtime.Serialization (mscorlib.dll)interface

Objects that implement this interface can be delegated to perform the serialization and deserialization of another object by providing customized methods for GetObjectData( ) and SetObjectData( ). GetObjectData( ) gets the member information to create a SerializationInfo instance, while SetObjectData( ) uses information from a SerializationInfo instance to recreate an object.

public interface ISerializationSurrogate {
// Public Instance Methods
   public void GetObjectData(object obj, SerializationInfo info, StreamingContext context);
   public object SetObjectData(object obj, SerializationInfo info, StreamingContext context, 
        ISurrogateSelector selector);

Returned By

ISurrogateSelector.GetSurrogate( ), SurrogateSelector.GetSurrogate( )

Passed To

SurrogateSelector.AddSurrogate( )
