Serialize and Deserialize an Object Instance to XML

To serialize an object instance to XML, you need to use the XMLSerializer class's Serialize method. The code snippet below demonstrates:

XmlSerializer xmlSer = new XmlSerializer(objInstance.GetType());
System.Text.StringBuilder sb = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
System.IO.StringWriter writer = new System.IO.StringWriter(sb);
xmlSer.Serialize(writer, objInstance);
XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
To deserialize the serialized XML back to an object instance, you need to use the XMLSerializer Class's DeSerialize method:

XmlNodeReader reader = new XmlNodeReader(doc.DocumentElement);
XmlSerializer xmlSer = new XmlSerializer(objType);
object obj = xmlSer .Deserialize(reader);
//Cast the object to respective type
OBJClass Obj = (OBJClass)obj;
