SoapFieldAttribute Class

Customizes SOAP generation and processing for a field. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace:  System.Runtime.Remoting.Metadata
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public sealed class SoapFieldAttribute : SoapAttribute

The target objects for the SoapFieldAttribute attribute are object fields. The SoapFieldAttribute attribute is used to specify information that controls how the .NET Framework generates the SOAP XML wire format for target fields.

The following code example demonstrates customization of SOAP generated for a field of a class with the SoapFieldAttribute. The SOAP can be produced by the code shown in the SerializableAttribute class example.

public class TestSimpleObject  {

    public int member1;

    [SoapFieldAttribute(XmlElementName="MyXmlElement")] public string member2;

    public string member3;
    public double member4;

    // A field that is not serialized.
    [NonSerialized()] public string member5; 

    public TestSimpleObject() {

        member1 = 11;
        member2 = "hello";
        member3 = "hello";
        member4 = 3.14159265;
        member5 = "hello world!";
public __gc class TestSimpleObject 
	int member1;

	String* member2;

	String* member3;
	double member4;

	// A field that is not serialized.
	String* member5; 

		member1 = 11;
		member2 = S"hello";
		member3 = S"hello";
		member4 = 3.14159265;
		member5 = S"hello world!";
