System.Web.UI (system.web.dll)sealed class

This class is used by ASP.NET to implement Limited Object Serialization (LOS) for view state. It converts the data stored in every control's StateBag into a lightly encrypted, condensed ASCII field that is added to the page as a hidden input control. While you can store complex information in the StateBag, the LosFormatter is optimized for strings, arrays, hashtables, and other primitive .NET types defined in the System namespace. This class provides functionality through the methods Serialize( ) and Deserialize( ).

public sealed class LosFormatter {
