Serialize RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I'm trying to perfom Serializing/De- function. But I can't get how it's works in Win8.

    I have a class Card needed to be serialized. 

    > Dim A As New XmlSerializer(GetType(Card))

    Then I need to write this data to localstorage file

    MSDN example shows:

    ' Create a FileStream to write with.
    Dim writer As New FileStream(filename, FileMode.Create)
    ' Serialize the object, and close the TextWriter
    serializer.Serialize(writer, i)

    But there is no kind of FileStream in Win8. How to create file stream and write serialized data there?..

  • Here is how should looks reply

    Dim Cards As New ObservableCollection(Of Card)
    Cards.Add(New Card)
    Cards(0).Name = "Hello!"

    Dim sw = New StringWriter
    Dim serializer = New XmlSerializer(GetType(ObservableCollection(Of Card)))
    serializer.Serialize(sw, Cards)
    Dim B As String = sw.ToString()

    Dim Cards2 As New ObservableCollection(Of Card)
    Dim sr As New StringReader(B)
    Dim deserializer = New XmlSerializer(GetType(ObservableCollection(Of Card)))
    Cards2 = deserializer.Deserialize(sr)
