ICustomEnum

Overview

The ICustomEnum interface defines a custom enumeration type that can be read or written by a Serializer instance.

The Serializer class contains a property of the type IROSerializerTypeFactory, named TypeFactory. This type factory allows to instantiate custom types not defined in the RODL while reading the incoming data stream. Also, the TypeFactory and the correspondong interfaces allow to implement a consistent way of serializing custom data types via standard RemObjects serializers like BinSerializer. This can be useful if integration with third-party libraries like ORM is needed.
