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

public sealed class DiscoveryClientResultsFile

The DiscoveryClientProtocol.DiscoveryClientResultsFile type exposes the following members.

Public methodDiscoveryClientProtocol.DiscoveryClientResultsFileInitializes a new instance of the DiscoveryClientProtocol.DiscoveryClientResultsFile class.

Public propertyResultsGets a collection of DiscoveryClientResult objects.

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 a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

When you invoke the DiscoveryClientProtocol.WriteAll method, all resolved discovery documents and a file containing a map of all those files are saved to a directory. The map file is described in XML with the root element being DiscoveryClientProtocol.DiscoveryClientResultsFile; this class is passed to the XmlSerializer class to serialize the results.
