IContentNegotiator.Negotiate Method

Performs content negotiating by selecting the most appropriate MediaTypeFormatter out of the passed in formatters for the given request that can serialize an object of the given type.

Namespace:  System.Net.Http.Formatting
Assembly:  System.Net.Http.Formatting (in System.Net.Http.Formatting.dll)
Function Negotiate ( _
	type As Type, _
	request As HttpRequestMessage, _
	formatters As IEnumerable(Of MediaTypeFormatter) _
) As ContentNegotiationResult
Dim instance As IContentNegotiator 
Dim type As Type 
Dim request As HttpRequestMessage 
Dim formatters As IEnumerable(Of MediaTypeFormatter)
Dim returnValue As ContentNegotiationResult 

returnValue = instance.Negotiate(type, _
	request, formatters)


Type: System.Type

The type to be serialized.

Type: HttpRequestMessage

Request message, which contains the header values used to perform negotiation.

Type: System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable(Of MediaTypeFormatter)

The set of MediaTypeFormatter objects from which to choose.

Return Value

Type: System.Net.Http.Formatting.ContentNegotiationResult
The result of the negotiation containing the most appropriate MediaTypeFormatter instance, or null if there is no appropriate formatter.

Implementations of this method should call <see cref="M:System.Net.Http.Formatting.MediaTypeFormatter.GetPerRequestFormatterInstance(System.Type,System.Net.Http.HttpRequestMessage,System.Net.Http.Headers.MediaTypeHeaderValue)" /> on the selected MediaTypeFormatter and return the result of that method.
