Serialize

Is it possible to "Serialize" a class to xml into a string or XmlDocument
without having to create a disk file?

Thanks in advance.

Sure:
public string XmlSerialize()
{
XmlSerializer mySerializer = new XmlSerializer(t his.GetType());
MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream();
mySerializer.Se rialize(ms, this);
ms.Position = 0;
StreamReader sr = new StreamReader(ms );
return sr.ReadToEnd();
}

And this is nice and generic.

XmlSerializer.S erialize() has overloads that take streams and such. Is that
what you are talking about?

Hi, I've created a UserControl-derived class called MyUserControl that is able to persist and subsequently reload its state. It exposes two methods as follows: public void Serialize(Stream s); public void Deserialize(Stream s); Within the MyUserControl class, there is a field of type MyInnerClass

I can provide a test app, the news server won't allow me to post the files because they are too large (93KB and 1.2KB) I downloaded the ESRI ArcXml schema and generated the classes from the schema using xsd.exe, which took a while because xsd doesn't handle recursive elements very well (StackOverFlow exception during generation). Now that I have the classes I am trying to serialize them to an xml document to send to ArcIMS to generate...

When I try to serialize an instance of the LocationCell below (note Building field) I get an error in the reflection attempt. If I remove the _Building field it serializes fine. I tried renaming Building._Name to Building._BName in case the duplicate name was the issue, but that didn't help. Is there a native way to serialize nested objects, or will I have to write my own? public class LocationCell

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...
