FIX: You may receive a "SerializationException" exception when you use a class that implements the "INotifyPropertyChanged" interface in an application that is built on the .NET Framework 2.0

Consider the following scenario:
  • In an application that is built on the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0, you use a class that implements the INotifyPropertyChanged interface.
  • You create a BindingList<class_name> object.

    Note The placeholder class_name represents the name of the class that implements the INotifyPropertyChanged interface.
  • You serialize and then deserialize the BindingList<class_name> object.
In this scenario, you may receive a SerializationException exception.
