XmlSerializerOperationBehavior Class

Controls run-time behavior of the XmlSerializer associated with an operation.


Namespace:  System.ServiceModel.Description
Assembly:  System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)

Public Class XmlSerializerOperationBehavior _
	Implements IOperationBehavior, IWsdlExportExtension

The XmlSerializerOperationBehavior type exposes the following members.

Public methodXmlSerializerOperationBehavior(OperationDescription)Initializes a new instance of the XmlSerializerOperationBehavior class with a specific operation.
Public methodXmlSerializerOperationBehavior(OperationDescription, XmlSerializerFormatAttribute)Initializes a new instance of the XmlSerializerOperationBehavior class.

Public propertyXmlSerializerFormatAttributeGets the object that holds SOAP use and format options.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetXmlMappingsGets the collection of mappings between XML schema elements and CLR data types.
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodIOperationBehavior.AddBindingParametersAdds a set of parameters to an operation description.
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodIOperationBehavior.ApplyClientBehaviorApplies a client's behavior to the operation.
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodIOperationBehavior.ApplyDispatchBehaviorApplies a dispatch behavior to the operation.
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodIOperationBehavior.ValidateValidates the operation.
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodIWsdlExportExtension.ExportContractExports the operation data as a WSDL document.
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodIWsdlExportExtension.ExportEndpointExports the endpoint data as a WSDL document.

The XmlSerializerOperationBehavior enables control of XmlSerializer options, such as the Style property of the XmlSerializerFormatAttribute.

The following example finds the XmlSerializerOperationBehavior for a specific operation, and sets the Style property of the XmlSerializerFormatAttribute for the serializer.

		Private Sub Run()
			Dim b As New WSHttpBinding(SecurityMode.Message)
			Dim baseAddress As New Uri("http://localhost:1066/calculator")
			Dim sh As New ServiceHost(GetType(Calculator), baseAddress)
			sh.AddServiceEndpoint(GetType(ICalculator), b, "")

			' Find the ContractDescription of the operation to find. 
			Dim cd As ContractDescription = sh.Description.Endpoints(0).Contract
			Dim myOperationDescription As OperationDescription = cd.Operations.Find("Add")

			' Find the serializer behavior. 
			Dim serializerBehavior As XmlSerializerOperationBehavior = myOperationDescription.Behaviors. Find(Of XmlSerializerOperationBehavior)()

			' If the serializer is not found, create one and add it. 
			If serializerBehavior Is Nothing Then
				serializerBehavior = New XmlSerializerOperationBehavior(myOperationDescription)
			End If 

			' Change style of the serialize attribute.
			serializerBehavior.XmlSerializerFormatAttribute.Style = OperationFormatStyle.Document

		End Sub
