getElementDescriptor

abstract fun getElementDescriptor(index: Int): SerialDescriptor

Retrieves the descriptor of the child element for the given index. For the property of type T on the position i, getElementDescriptor(i) yields the same result as for T.serializer().descriptor, if the serializer for this property is not explicitly overridden with @Serializable(with = ...)`, Polymorphic or Contextual. This method can be used to completely introspect the type that the current descriptor describes.

Throws

if the current descriptor does not support children elements (e.g. is a primitive).
