Gets or sets the formatter that deserializes messages into objects and serializes objects into messages.
Assembly: System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)
Use the property to insert a custom IDispatchMessageFormatter implementation for an operation or modify the current formatter. In the case of strongly-typed message operations, the use of the formatter can be controlled by the SerializeReply and DeserializeRequest properties.
The IDispatchMessageFormatter interface defines the SerializeReply and DeserializeRequest methods, which are used to convert a set of object parameters to a message and from a message to a set of return values, respectively.
