How to Ignore Non-Serializable Child When Serializing Object?

I have two classes, Logger and LoggerRuntime. Logger is serializble,
LoggerRuntime is not. LoggerRuntime inherits from Logger. At runtime,
I get a list of LoggerRuntime instances to save to an XML file. I only
want the public attributes of the parent Logger class to get written to
the file. Therefore, I cast the LoggerRuntime objects to "Logger" and
then try to serialize the Logger objects. Instead, I get the following

System.InvalidO perationExcepti on: The type
SerializationTe st.LoggerRuntim e was not expected. Use the XmlInclude or
SoapInclude attribute to specify types that are not known statically.

What am I doing wrong?

Casting doesn't matter; it still *is* a LoggerRuntime, no matter how it is
masquerading. In this case, you would probably be best to tell XmlSerializer
to expect also LoggerRuntime (there is an overload for this, or you can use
the XmlInclude attribute on Logger) - and mark the additional public
properties (in LoggerRuntime) with [XmlIgnore] to stop it from attempting to
serialize them.

I came across a very strange situation at work. There is an order of magnitude difference in execution time for the following two queries (10 v/s ~130 msec): select count(*) from table_name where column_name = 'value' or 1 = 0 select count(*) from table_name where column_name = 'value' I do not want to go into the reason why the redundent condition exists, the example is representative of the real query where it

The meaning of REPLACE INTO is clear to me. IF the new record presents new key values, then it is inserted as a new record. IF the new record has key values that match a pre-existing record, then the key violation is ignored and the new record *replaces* the pre-existing record. But what about INSERT IGNORE? Is this a synonym for REPLACE INTO - i.e. it does precisely the same thing?

I seem to ALWAYS need to use cin.ignore in my programs (console apps using Dev C++ for a University course). The problem is that if I don't ignore ENOUGH characters then it's like not having the cin.ignore. If I ignore too many that's just as bad. There has got to be some way to just say 'if there is anything in the input stream or buffer get rid of it' so I can start fresh so to speak. What is it? (It has just GOT to exist...)

I am wondering if there is a way to use a DTD or Schema to instruct an XML parser to ignore tags that are not defined. That is, if my list of acceptable tags is <bodyand <content>, then in the following example: <body> We may have some text <b>and some <u>other tags</u></b> <contentbut I want the text and undefined tags to be part of the text-node

Hi, I ocasionally use display: none; to hide divs that, on the click of a link they will reappear. For example, maybe I create a menu and when you click a link of menu options the submenu options appear. Anyway, is it true that screen readers for visually impaired users mostly ignore elements that are hidden this way? Is it better to use position: absolute; and set it off the screen? Just a bit concerned because a few of my projects...
