Hello EE!

Having a trouble to figure out how to call methods of xsd2Code generated business objects .NET application.

Say for instance I have generated with xsd2Code with a

Namespace CustomersOrders

 ...
    Partial Public Class Root 
....

Open in new window


As it stated I have to call Root.Serialize()
to generate test XML.

in VB.NET it's just not working as well I can access only  Deserialize()  and ReadFromFile
but nothing else.

Where to begin to work with generated classes and how to pass a values to those classes during serialization?

Thank you.

Looking at the designer class, there is a serialize method but it appears to be dummy and is expected to be overriden by your code.

Hi Savant.
Oh, You right! it turns like need some constructions like
Public Overrides Function  Serialize() As String 

Open in new window


But how to build this Overrides Function for every element in generated classes ?

Can I just replace it in a classes declarations with same construction as Deserialize have :
 Public Overloads Shared Function Deserialize(ByVal input As String, ByRef obj As Root, ByRef exception As System.Exception) As Boolean

Open in new window


In other words, what the use of those overridden functions if they are build in every separate Partial Public Class  like Root or CustomerType or AddressType ...

May be you have some very simple example how to use them for serialization?

Thank you.

You implement it in each class so that you can serialize each class independently. You choose the way you want to serialize it. For example, you can serialize it to XML, JSON or plain text.

Here is an example which uses builtin XMLSerializer
