SoapHttpClientProtocol.BeginInvoke Method

Starts an asynchronous invocation of an XML Web service method using SOAP.

Namespace:  System.Web.Services.Protocols
Assembly:  System.Web.Services (in System.Web.Services.dll)

member BeginInvoke : 
        methodName:string * 
        parameters:Object[] * 
        callback:AsyncCallback * 
        asyncState:Object -> IAsyncResult

Parameters

methodName
Type: System.String

The name of the XML Web service method in the derived class that is invoking the BeginInvoke method.

parameters
Type: System.Object[]

An array of objects containing the parameters to pass to the XML Web service. The order of the values in the array correspond to the order of the parameters in the calling method of the derived class.

callback
Type: System.AsyncCallback

The delegate to call when the asynchronous invoke is complete. If callback is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), the delegate is not called.

asyncState
Type: System.Object

Extra information supplied by the caller.

Return Value

Type: System.IAsyncResult
An IAsyncResult that is passed to the EndInvoke method to obtain the return values from the remote method call.

ExceptionCondition
SoapException

The request reached the server computer, but was not processed successfully.

InvalidOperationException

The request was not valid for the object's current state.

WebException

An error occurred while accessing the network.

Typically, you would not call the BeginInvoke method directly, unless you were building your own proxy class for an XML Web service.

A proxy class generated by the Web Services Description Language tool (Wsdl.exe) from a Service Description exposes the XML Web service methods as names derived from the proxy class to call the XML Web service methods synchronously. To call the XML Web service methods asynchronously, two additional methods are added to the proxy class for each XML Web service method, one with the Begin prefix added to the name of the XML Web service method and one with the End prefix added.

The proxy class calls the BeginInvoke method to start an asynchronous invocation call to the XML Web service method. For example, if an XML Web service exposes an XML Web service method named Add, the proxy class contains a method named BeginAdd, for starting an invocation to the XML Web service method. Within the code for the BeginAdd, a call is made to the BeginInvoke method and the results are placed into the expected return type for Add.

The methodName is used to find the custom attributes which may have been added to the method, such as SoapDocumentMethodAttribute. SoapDocumentMethodAttribute provides additional information about the derived method that is required for the SOAP protocol.

asyncState is passed into callback and is included in the IAsyncResult that is returned from the BeginInvoke method. The asyncState parameter can be used to pass information about the context of the asynchronous call, specified in the callback parameter, to the delegate that handles the result.

The following code example is a proxy class generated by the Web Services Description Language tool (Wsdl.exe) for the Math XML Web service. Within the BeginAdd method of the proxy class, the BeginInvoke method is starting an asynchronous invocation to the Add XML Web service method.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.

The following code example is the Math XML Web service, from which the preceding proxy class was created.
