Hi all I have a xml file which I want to serialize to a class.

Now I want to serialize an array of items, before I have had to encase the items in a parent node for example

in the xml file
<myclass>
<item1></item1>
<item2></item2>
<parent>
<child></child>
<child></child>
<child></child>
</parent>
</myclass>

and in the class

[XmlArray("parent")]
[XmlArrayItem("child", typeof(myclass))]
public myclass[] children { get; set; }

Now is it possible to lose the encasing element? i.e. the the parent node? and load seelcted elements into an array? Or do I need this preceeding element?
