SoapOption Enumeration

Specifies the SOAP configuration options for use with the SoapTypeAttribute class.

This enumeration has a FlagsAttribute attribute that allows a bitwise combination of its member values.

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

public enum SoapOption
/** @attribute SerializableAttribute() */ 
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(true) */ 
/** @attribute FlagsAttribute() */ 
public enum SoapOption
public enum SoapOption

 Member nameDescription
AlwaysIncludeTypesIndicates that type will always be included on SOAP elements. This option is useful when performing SOAP interop with SOAP implementations that require types on all elements. 
EmbedAllIndicates that SOAP will be generated without references. This option is currently not implemented. 
NoneThe default option indicating that no extra options are selected. 
Option1Public reserved option for temporary interop conditions; the use will change. 
Option2Public reserved option for temporary interop conditions; the use will change. 
XsdStringIndicates that the output SOAP string type in a SOAP Envelope is using the XSD prefix, and that the resulting XML does not have an ID attribute for the string. 

For example, while a class by default might be remoted in the SOAP format as

 <member2 id="ref-3">hello</member2>
 <member3 href="#ref-3"/>
 <member4 href="#ref-4"/>
 <member4shared href="#ref-4"/>
 <member5 href="#ref-5"/>
 <member6 id="ref-6" xsi:type="SOAP-ENC:string">Hello World</member6>
 <str1 id="ref-7">hello &#60; world</str1>
 <str2 id="ref-8">&#60;</str2>
 <str3 id="ref-9">&#60; world</str3>
 <str4 href="#ref-7"/>

remoting serialization with the XsdString option would produce the following XML.

 <member1 xsi:type="xsd:int">10</member1>
 <member2 xsi:type="xsd:string">hello</member2>
 <member3 xsi:type="xsd:string">hello</member3>
 <member4 href="#ref-3"/>
 <member4shared href="#ref-3"/>
 <member5 href="#ref-4"/>
 <member6 xsi:type="xsd:string">Hello World</member6>
 <str1 xsi:type="xsd:string">hello &#60; world</str1>
 <str2 xsi:type="xsd:string">&#60;</str2>
 <str3 xsi:type="xsd:string">&#60; world</str3>
 <str4 xsi:type="xsd:string">hello &#60; world</str4>
