Establishes an interface for file extension search patterns for discoverable file types.
Assembly: System.Web.Services (in System.Web.Services.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetDiscoveryReference||When overridden in a derived class, returns the DiscoveryReference object for a given file name.|
|GetHashCode||Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
You can use the DiscoveryDocument.References property to add a discoverable file type to a Web services document. While a discovery document is usually serialized as a file using a .disco extension, you can add multiple files to the References property, and those files can have other extensions, represented by implementations of .
The class and its concrete derived classes are employed by the DiscoveryRequestHandler class's ProcessRequest method, which handles an HTTP request for a discovery document. Normally, none of these classes need to be used directly by a developer.
