Usage Note

In Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type Object. When you use instance method syntax to call this method, omit the first parameter. For more information, see Extension Methods (Visual Basic) or Extension Methods (C# Programming Guide).
Remarks
If you configure the method to use the data contract serializer you must ensure that the rules of WCF are used. Especially you must take care about circular references. Circular references needs the named property 'IsReference' to be set true in this case; otherwise a StackOverflowException will be occur.
