How to: Use the WebService Attribute

 Windows Communication Foundation Services and ADO.NET Data Services

You can use the WebService attribute to specify the namespace, which defaults to "", and description text for the XML Web service. By default the ASP.NET Web Service project template does not generate a class that includes this attribute. Separate multiple properties with a comma.

To apply the WebService attribute

  • Insert the WebService attribute before the class declaration and set the Namespace and Description properties as shown below:

    <System.Web.Services.WebService( _ 
       Namespace:="http://servername/xmlwebservices/", _ 
       Description:="Some descriptive text could go here.")> _ 
    Public Class Service1
        Inherits System.Web.Services.WebService
        ' Implementation code.
    End Class

       Description="Some descriptive text could go here.")] 
    public class Service1 : System.Web.Services.WebService
        // Implementation code.
