A few XmlElement attributes on a property C#


Can I have more than one XmlElement on property of a class? For example:

[XmlElement("name")] [XmlElement("clientName")] public string Name { .. }

I need this for deserialization. Let's say that the Name element in the XML file will be named "name" or "clientName". I want to achieve some kind of flexibility (to list the possible names for the xml element which correspond to the Name attribute.

The main idea is that I have to import XML files from another program and I have to make some kind of "templates for import".


The answer is actually yes, but only under certain conditions. If you want a different element name for different types, you can do that. As for no type specified, the <a href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.xml.serialization.xmlelementattribute.aspx" rel="nofollow">documentation</a> says nothing.

[XmlElement(typeof(int), ElementName = "ObjectNumber"), XmlElement(typeof(string), ElementName = "ObjectString")] public ArrayList ExtraInfo;


Guessing that you need to import XML with two different element names for the same value you could do this:

string _Name; [XmlElement("name")] public string Name { get { return _Name; } set { _Name = value; } } [XmlElement("clientName")] public string ClientName { get { return _Name; } set { _Name = value; } }
