SoapAttributeAttribute Class

Specifies that the XmlSerializer must serialize the class member as an encoded SOAP attribute.

System::Object
  System::Attribute
    System.Xml.Serialization::SoapAttributeAttribute

Namespace:  System.Xml.Serialization
Assembly:  System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)

[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets::Property|AttributeTargets::Field|AttributeTargets::Parameter|AttributeTargets::ReturnValue)]
public ref class SoapAttributeAttribute : public Attribute

The SoapAttributeAttribute type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkSoapAttributeAttribute()Initializes a new instance of the SoapAttributeAttribute class.
Public methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkSoapAttributeAttribute(String)Initializes a new instance of the SoapAttributeAttribute class using the specified value as the name of the XML attribute.

  NameDescription
Public propertySupported by the XNA FrameworkAttributeNameGets or sets the name of the XML attribute generated by the XmlSerializer.
Public propertySupported by the XNA FrameworkDataTypeGets or sets the XML Schema definition language (XSD) data type of the SOAP attribute generated by the XmlSerializer.
Public propertySupported by the XNA FrameworkNamespaceGets or sets the XML namespace of the XML attribute.
Public propertyTypeIdWhen implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute. (Inherited from Attribute.)

  NameDescription
Public methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkEqualsInfrastructure. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkGetHashCodeReturns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodIsDefaultAttributeWhen overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkMatchWhen overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

  NameDescription
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method_Attribute::GetIDsOfNamesMaps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method_Attribute::GetTypeInfoRetrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method_Attribute::GetTypeInfoCountRetrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1). (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method_Attribute::InvokeProvides access to properties and methods exposed by an object. (Inherited from Attribute.)

The SoapAttributeAttribute class belongs to a family of attributes that controls how the XmlSerializer serializes, or deserializes, an object as encoded SOAP XML. The resulting XML conforms to section 5 of the World Wide Web Consortium (www.w3.org) document, "Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) 1.1". For a complete list of similar attributes, see Attributes That Control Encoded SOAP Serialization.

To serialize an object as an encoded SOAP message, you must construct the XmlSerializer using an XmlTypeMapping created with the ImportTypeMapping method of the SoapReflectionImporter class.

Apply the SoapAttributeAttribute to a public field to specify that the XmlSerializer serializes the field as an XML attribute. You can specify an alternative name of the attribute by setting the AttributeName property. Set the DataType if the attribute must be given a specific XML Schema definition language (XSD) data type. If the attribute belongs to a specific XML namespace, set the Namespace property.

For more information about using attributes, see Extending Metadata Using Attributes

NoteNote

You can use the word SoapAttribute in your code instead of the longer SoapAttributeAttribute.

The following example serializes a class that contains several fields to which a SoapAttributeAttribute is applied.
