Public Member Functions

void read (in nsIObjectInputStream aInputStream)
 Initialize the object implementing nsISerializable, which must have been freshly constructed via CreateInstance.
void write (in nsIObjectOutputStream aOutputStream)
 Serialize the object implementing nsISerializable to aOutputStream, by writing each data member that must be recovered later to reconstitute a working replica of this object, in a canonical member and byte order, to aOutputStream.

Member Function Documentation

void nsISerializable::read ( in nsIObjectInputStream  aInputStream  ) 

Initialize the object implementing nsISerializable, which must have been freshly constructed via CreateInstance.

All data members that can't be set to default values must have been serialized by write, and should be read from aInputStream in the same order by this method.

void nsISerializable::write ( in nsIObjectOutputStream  aOutputStream  ) 

Serialize the object implementing nsISerializable to aOutputStream, by writing each data member that must be recovered later to reconstitute a working replica of this object, in a canonical member and byte order, to aOutputStream.

NB: a class that implements nsISerializable *must* also implement nsIClassInfo, in particular nsIClassInfo::GetClassID.
