Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

True to encode messages; otherwise, false. The default value is true.

The storage client library encodes the message content using Base64 when EncodeMessage is set to true. You can set this property to false if the content of your messages is safe to pass in XML as raw UTF-8 with no Base64 encoding.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
