Use BaseTrue

Writes outgoing request parameters for Web services implemented using HTTP with name-value pairs encoded like an HTML form rather than as a SOAP message.

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

public class HtmlFormParameterWriter : UrlEncodedParameterWriter


Initializes a new instance of the HtmlFormParameterWriter class.


Gets or sets the encoding used to write parameters to the HTTP request.(Inherited from UrlEncodedParameterWriter.)


Gets a value that indicates whether Web method parameter values are serialized to the outgoing HTTP request body.(Overrides MimeParameterWriter.UsesWriteRequest.)

System_CAPS_protmethodEncode(TextWriter, Object[])

Encodes all the parameter values for a Web method and writes them to the specified writer.(Inherited from UrlEncodedParameterWriter.)

System_CAPS_protmethodEncode(TextWriter, String, Object)

Encodes a specified parameter value and writes it to the specified writer.(Inherited from UrlEncodedParameterWriter.)


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 an initializer for the specified method.(Inherited from UrlEncodedParameterWriter.)


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

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetRequestUrl(String, Object[])

When overridden in a derived class, modifies the outgoing HTTP request's Uniform Request Locator (URL).(Inherited from MimeParameterWriter.)


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


Initializes an instance.(Inherited from UrlEncodedParameterWriter.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodInitializeRequest(WebRequest, Object[])

Initializes the outgoing HTTP request. (Overrides MimeParameterWriter.InitializeRequest(WebRequest, Object[]).)


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


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

System_CAPS_pubmethodWriteRequest(Stream, Object[])

Serializes Web method parameter values into a stream representing the outgoing HTTP request body.(Overrides MimeParameterWriter.WriteRequest(Stream, Object[]).)

HtmlFormParameterWriter 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 client-side HtmlFormParameterWriter class provides methods to write parameter name-value pairs to the body of an HTTP request with the MIME type application/x-www-form-urlencoded.

You typically will not need to use HtmlFormParameterWriter directly. When the Wsdl.exe tool generates client proxy code according to the HTTP-POST implementation, it applies the HttpMethodAttribute to each Web method and sets the attribute's ParameterFormatter property to HtmlFormParameterWriter.
