hi!
I have a class called File_Properties, the class contains two CString data members Say CString X and CString Y.
The objects of File_Properties are stored in a class called File_Properties_Array derived from CArray
eg. (File_Properties_Array:public CArray<File_Properties,File_Properties&>

Later in the View class the File_Properties_Array (lets call is FPA) is populated and there is a need to store and retrieve it later from a text  file.
I tried using the conventional (FPA.serialize(ar)), but it throws an exception when I read from the file, becuse of data incompatability reasons.

Could anybody please tell me , how would I serialize this class and then how would I store objects of class File_Properties.

Your reply would be very helpful.

thanks
rahul

CArray is probably not the right tool when it comes to serializing.
