How can I generate xml elements or attributes from a custom collection?
 Hi:

I have a custom collection and items have two properties. 
I want to serialize one property to an xmlelement and another property to an xmlattribute. How can I do this? 

Thanks.
Best Regards.

Give the [Serializable] attribute to appropriate property such a way you can serialize it by selective members.

using System.Xml.Serialization;

namespace SampleApp
{
    [Serializable][XmlRoot("MyCollection")]
    class CustomCollection
    {
        [XmlElement("myElement")]
        public string MyElementProperty { get; set; }

        [XmlAttribute("myAttribute")]
        public string MyAttributeProperty { get; set; }
    }
}


Thanks

To accomplish your goal add attributes to the properties in your collection. When the XML Serializer writes the XML it will create the requested node type.

Here's a sample in C#
using System.Xml.Serialization;

namespace SampleApp
{
    [XmlRoot("MyCollection")]
    class CustomCollection
    {
        [XmlElement("myElement")]
        public string MyElementProperty { get; set; }

        [XmlAttribute("myAttribute")]
        public string MyAttributeProperty { get; set; }
    }
}
Hope it helps,

Steve
