XmlSerializer Namespace problem

P: n/a
Hello,

I have a set of classes I created from schema files using the xsd.exe
tool. I'm using namespaces in the clases ( I had to because I have
some classes with the same name but not the same class )
Here is how a given class wil looks like.

<System.Xml.Serialization.XmlRootAttribute([Namespace]:="mynamespace",
IsNullable:=False)> _
Public Class ClassName

End Class

So far so good.

My problem is that I want to deserialize the xml document back, but
the xml document don't have the namespaces. I use the
XmlAttributeOverrides collection to solve the problem by ignoring the
namespaces, but so far I have to add an XmlAttribute for each type
(Class) I want to override.
something like this:

Dim atts As New XmlAttributes
Dim xover As New XmlAttributeOverrides

atts.Xmlns = False

xover.Add(GetType(ClassName), atts)

MyObject = CType(oSerializer.Deserialize(oReader), ClassName)

Is there a way I can tell the serializer to ignore the namespaces for
all types without having to write each type?

Thanks,
Alexis
