Use the MessageBodyMemberAttribute attribute to specify that a data member is serialized into the SOAP body and to control some serialization items.

The Order property is used to specify the order of body parts in cases where the default alphabetical order is not appropriate.

The other properties are inherited from the base class, System.ServiceModel.MessageContractMemberAttribute.

For more information about controlling the serialization of the contents of a SOAP body without modifying the default SOAP envelope itself, see System.Runtime.Serialization.DataContractAttribute, Specifying Data Transfer in Service Contracts, and Using Data Contracts.

For more information, see Using Message Contracts.

The following code example shows the use of the MessageContractAttribute to control the SOAP envelope structure for both the request message and the response message, and the use of both the MessageHeaderAttribute (to create a SOAP header for the response message) and the MessageBodyMemberAttribute (to specify the bodies of both the request and response message). The code example contains an example of each message when sent.
