inherited classes deserialization problem[edit | edit source]
DataContractJsonSerializer cannot deserialize complex objects, and __type is not managed.
XmlSerializer cannot help with complex objects too, only DataContractSerializer is needed.
marking properties[edit | edit source]
As of .NET 3.0, you can use DataContract instead of Serializable. With the DataContract though, you will need to either "opt-in" by marking the serializable fields with the DataMember attribute; or "opt-out" using the IgnoreDataMember... opt-out by default will only serialize public members, while opt-in will only serialize the marked members (regardless of protection level)
