Message.GetBody<T> Method

Retrieves the body of this Message instance.

Namespace:  System.ServiceModel.Channels
Assembly:  System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)

public T GetBody<T>()

Type Parameters


The body of the message.

Return Value

Type: T
An object of type T that contains the body of this message.

A Message instance has a body that corresponds to the SOAP body. It can be accessed as an XmlDictionaryReader by calling GetReaderAtBodyContents. It is initially positioned directly after the <S:Body> element, and it returns EOF on reaching the </S:Body> element. Alternatively, if you expect the body to contain a serialized object, you can call GetBody instead. You should be aware that a message body can only be accessed once and a message can only be written once. If you want to access the Body multiple times, use CreateBufferedCopy to create a MessageBuffer instance.

Use the GetBody<T>(XmlObjectSerializer) overload when working with JSON messages; the GetBody<T>() overload does not work.
