public class NewSTBLog
      {
            [XmlElement(ElementName = "LogBatch")]
            public NewLogBatch STBLogBatch;

            [XmlElement(typeof(LogRecord))]      
            public object[] LogRecords;
      }  


      //Structure of the Batch
      public class NewLogBatch
      {
            [XmlIgnore()]
            public char MSFTVersion;

            [XmlIgnore()]
            public char DeviceSerialNumLen;
            public string DeviceSerialNum;
            public char BatchNumber;
            public string LogInitTime;

            [XmlIgnore()]
            public char AccessPointIdLen;  
            public string AccessPointId;                        
            public string EndLogTime;

            [XmlIgnore()]
            public short NumRecordsStored;      
      }               

          
      //Structure of the Log Records
      public class NewLogRecord
      {
            [XmlIgnore()]
            public int LogType;             
                    
            [XmlElement(typeof(ADClicks)), XmlElement(typeof(ADDisplays)), XmlElement(typeof(NewApplicationLogs))]      
            [XmlElement(typeof(AppPermissionViolations)), XmlElement(typeof(BoxPower)), XmlElement(typeof(DVR))]
            [XmlElement(typeof(GamePlay)), XmlElement(typeof(MenuClick)), XmlElement(typeof(MenuView)), XmlElement(typeof(TVView))]  
            public object oActivityLogs;  
      }                                    

At one point XmlElement(ElementName=LogBatch) used and else where typeof is used in XmlElement ... what does that mean ? cant i use both element name and type of in one XmlElement attribute ? whats the difference in the use of the 2 ?

Please explain !!!

If you don't use "ElementName=xxx", then the field name will be used. In the cases where you are using typeof, you are essentially describing a collection of possible types that can be found in oActivityLogs.

Here is a pretty good basic example: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.xml.serialization.xmlelementattribute.type.aspx

Look at is IXmlSerializable.  Its official for use in .NET 2.0 and it leads to a much better class design than anything attribute based.  IXmlSerializable will allow public/protected/private members to be serialized.
