Hello
I am currently on a project where I need to implement a function so the user can save their session. What's the best way to do that if you have a couple of objects of classes and som arraylists.
Is XML the way to go? I have tried doing it with XML and it worked with one object but not with more.

I would be really happy if you could demonstrate with the code below since that would show the concept in a easy way.(I want it to function like this: The first time you start the program you click on the button and all objects gets their values. Then everything is saved/serialized into perhaps an XML file. The next time you start you should be able to retrieve the values from the file instead.

Code:
Imports System.IO
Imports System.Xml.Serialization

Public Class Form1
    'Objects
    Public class1Object As New Class1
    Public class2Object As New Class2
    Public listTest As New ArrayList

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        'Gives values to the variables in the objects.
        class1Object.Variable1 = 50
        class1Object.Variable2 = "Test"
        class2Object.Variable3 = 100
        class2Object.Variable4 = "Test2"
        listTest.Add(1)
        listTest.Add(2)
        listTest.Add(3)
    End Sub
End Class

'Classes
Public Class Class1
    Public Variable1 As Integer
    Public Variable2 As String
End Class
Public Class Class2
    Public Variable3 As Double
    Public Variable4 As String
End Class
