XmlSerializer in inherited objects

Now Hierarchy is that there is a class named "Student"
There are two child classes "GraduateStuden t" and "HighSchoolStud ent".
I worte the following code for serializing the student and
deserializing.
Now the problem is that as i do not know the type of Student while
deserializing so i get an error on line
student= (Student)deseri alizer.Deserial ize(memoryStrea m);

Any help will be highly appriciated
public void SerializeMyStud ent(Student student)
{
NetworkStream netWorkStream=n ull;
try
{
XmlSerializer serializer=new XmlSerializer(s tudent.GetType( ));
netWorkStream=n ew NetworkStream(_ clientSocket);
Stream stream=(Stream) netWorkStream;
serializer.Seri alize(stream,st udent);
}
finally
{
netWorkStream.C lose();
}
}

and the deserializeMess age is like
public bool DeserializeMess age(ref NetworkStream networkStream)
{

XmlSerializer deserializer=nu ll;
int count=0;
Byte []buffer=new Byte[BUFFER_SIZE];
count=networkSt ream.Read(buffe r,0,buffer.Leng th);
if(count <= 0)
{
message=null;
return false;
}

Student student= new Student();
deserializer=ne w XmlSerializer(s tudent.GetType( ));

MemoryStream memoryStream=nu ll;
memoryStream=ne w MemoryStream(bu ffer,0,count);
student= (Student)deseri alizer.Deserial ize(memoryStrea m);
return true;
}

I'm making a 6-tiered application that is using Xml to tie the various layers together in a very clean manner. I'm also trying to do this on the 1.1 Framework although I'm willing to switch to the 1.0 Framework if need be. One layer, which I call a Data Persistence Layer, uses the System.Xml.Serialization.XmlSerializer to transform our business/domain objects into the appropriate Xml format.

I am trying to find a solution that will allow me to use XmlSerializer to serialize/deserialize a collection of objects where a given object is shared between two or more other objects, and not create duplicate XML representations of the shared object, but instead use IDREFs to refer to the shared object. The XML I'm trying to produce is as follows (where "href" is an IDREF): <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <MyRootClass...

I've run across a strange behaviour with XmlSerializer that I'm unable to explain. I came across this while trying to use XmlSerializer to deserialize from a the details of a SoapException. This should have worked fine since the class in question was already being serialized and deserialized as part of a Web service interface. What I found was that by deserializing from an XmlNodeReader instead of an XmlTextReader, XML Serialization doesn't work...

I'm trying to serialize a class with XmlSerializer. This class implements the IEnumerable interface. I implemented the IEnumerable interface for reasons other than Xml serialization. However I find that the XmlSerializer, because I have an IEnumerable interface on this class, wants to ignore the public properties of this class and simply serialize an array of objects. I wand XmlSerializer to ignore the IEnumerable interface that I...

Hi, I want to send XML data from a server to some clients over a network connection using the TCP/IP protocol. If I send the XMLs as byte arrays I need to insert header information in the data to distinguish the XMLs from each other in the stream of data. Is there any way to avoid this (for instance by sending SOAP telegrams))? I have tried using the XMLSerializer.Serialize(stream) to serialize the XML telegrams and send them over the...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...
