Project to reproduce the problem
When using DataContractSerializer, methods in the model which is being Serialized/Deserialized can be marked with attributes so that they are called at particular points in the process. These are OnDeserializing, OnDeserialized, OnSerializing and OnSerialized.
When using the DataContractSerializer in Xamarin.Android, it calls the model methods attributed as OnDeserializing and OnDeserialized, but it fails to call the OnSerializing and OnSerialized methods. All four methods are called when identical code is run in .Net, but in Xamarin.Android, only the Deserialize methods are called.
I also tested with DataContractJsonSerializer, and that worked fine for all 4 methods, so I think this issue is unique to DataContractSerializer.
I've attached a simple project to reproduce the problem.
I have checked this issue and able to reproduce it. To reproduce this issue I have followed the steps and instruction provide din bug description.
Steps to reproduced:
1. Open attached test Sample in VS.
2. Use "DataContractSerializer"
3. Build and deploy the application.
4. Observed that you will fined in application output:
5. Now test it with "DataContractJsonSerializer"
6. Build and run the application.
7. Observed the application output:
