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

<ComVisibleAttribute(True)> _
<AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Class Or AttributeTargets.Struct Or AttributeTargets.Enum Or AttributeTargets.Interface)> _
Public NotInheritable Class SoapTypeAttribute _
	Inherits SoapAttribute
Dim instance As SoapTypeAttribute

The SoapTypeAttribute attribute is a custom attribute that can be applied to objects, value types, and interface objects. This attribute is used to specify information on an object type that controls how SOAP will generate the SOAP XML wire format.

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

<Serializable(), SoapTypeAttribute(XmlNamespace := "MyXmlNamespace")> Public Class TestSimpleObject

   Public member1 As Integer

   <SoapFieldAttribute(XmlElementName := "MyXmlElement")> Public member2 As String 

   Public member3 As String 
   Public member4 As Double 

   ' A field that is not serialized.
   <NonSerialized()> Public member5 As String   

   Public Sub New()
      member1 = 11
      member2 = "hello"
      member3 = "hello"
      member4 = 3.14159265
      member5 = "hello world!" 
   End Sub 'New 

End Class 'TestSimpleObject
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!";
