 private Dictionary<string, object> _inputProps;

 public Dictionary<string, object> InputProperties


            get { return this._inputProps; }


by using OnGetState,OnSetState

_inputProps = info.GetValue<Dictionary<string, object>>("_inputProps");

MobileFormatter requires all values in the object graph be primitive types or to implement IMobileObject.

There is a MobileDictionary type in Csla.Core that implements IMobileObject. It has some limitations on the <K,V> types, but it generally is the same as Dictionary.

Of course the <K,V> types must both be either primitive or must implement IMobileObject.

You can avoid the requirement for a child value (contained value) to implement IMobileObject if you can have the containing object take over the serialization of the child. That's usually very hard to do because it means the child's state must be completely public.

The CSLA PropertyInfo<T> type is not serializable. Nor is the System.Reflection PropertyInfo type.
