Adding serialization info for custom serializer

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      I have a class as follows:

      class Person
      {
      public String Id

      { get; set; }
      public String Name { get; set; }

      public Person Mother

      { get; set; }

      }

      I've implemented a custom serializer for the Mother property to serialize the Id only. The final BSON would look something like this:

      [{ "_id": "54df1095fa0bd7122cb2c550", "name": "John", "mother":

      { "_id": "54df1095fa0bd7122cb2c551" }

      } ...]

      If I try to execute a query to find a person with a given mother as follow:

      var results = await collection.Find<Person> (p => p.Mother.Id == "...").ToListAsync ();

      The driver complains with the following:

      {"Unable to determine the serialization information for the expression: p.Mother.Id."}

      Is there a way to add serialization info to the driver so it knows to call my custom serializer to deserialize Person for this type of query?
