The following table lists the possible values for the BodyType element.

Value Description

Best

The response will return the richest available content of body text. This is useful if it is unknown whether the content is text or HTML.

The returned body will be text if the stored body is plain text. Otherwise, the response will return HTML if the stored body is in either HTML or RTF format.

This is the default value.

HTML

The response will return an item body as HTML.

Text

The response will return an item body as plain text.

You can identify the type of body returned in the response by checking the BodyType attribute of the Body element. The BodyType attribute will identify the body as either HTML or text.
