A long time feature request has been added to Visual Basic 10 that ships with Visual Studio 2010; decorating an Event as NonSerialized.
In prior versions of Visual Basic, developers had to implement a Custom Event or another workaround when their types needed to expose an Event and they had to be Serializable. C# had this capability, now Visual Basic does too!
A very common scenario is a class that implements
INotifyPropertyChanged and must also be Serializable.
Visual Basic developers can now decorate the Event with the
NonSerialized attribute. The compiler does the rest for you.
Public Class Customer
#Region " INotifyPropertyChanged Serializable "
Public Event PropertyChanged(
ByVal sender As Object,
ByVal e As System.ComponentModel.PropertyChangedEventArgs) _
Protected Sub OnPropertyChanged(ByVal strPropertyName As String)
If Me.PropertyChangedEvent IsNot Nothing Then
RaiseEvent PropertyChanged(Me, New PropertyChangedEventArgs(strPropertyName))
Have a great day.
Just a grain of sand on the world's beaches.
