Provides a minimal reader of incoming response return values for Web service clients implemented using HTTP but without SOAP.

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

public class AnyReturnReader : MimeReturnReader


Initializes a new instance of the AnyReturnReader class.


Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)


Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)


Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)


Returns the parameter passed to the Initialize method.(Overrides MimeFormatter.GetInitializer(LogicalMethodInfo).)


When overridden in a derived class, returns an array of initializer objects corresponding to an input array of method definitions.(Inherited from MimeFormatter.)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)


Initializes an instance of the AnyReturnReader class.(Overrides MimeFormatter.Initialize(Object).)


Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodRead(WebResponse, Stream)

Returns the input HTTP response stream.(Overrides MimeReturnReader.Read(WebResponse, Stream).)


Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

AnyReturnReader and other classes in the System.Web.Services.Protocols namespace support the .NET Framework's implementations of Web services via the HTTP-GET and HTTP-POST operations. Web service writers and readers serialize and deserialize, respectively, between the parameters or return objects of Web methods and the HTTP request or response streams. Web service writers and readers use HTTP for transport but don't exchange messages using the SOAP standard.

The AnyReturnReader class provides a minimal implementation of the interface of the abstract parent class MimeReturnReader.You typically will not need to use AnyReturnReader directly. When the Wsdl.exe tool generates client proxy code according to the HTTP-GET or HTTP-POST implementations, it applies the HttpMethodAttribute to each Web method and by default sets the attribute's ReturnFormatter property to XmlReturnReader, another class derived from MimeReturnReader.
