Serves as a non-acting 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)
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 class provides a non-reading implementation of the interface of the abstract class MimeReturnReader.
You typically will not need to use the class. Instead, 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. Wsdl.exe sets the property to if it is otherwise unable to determine a value.
