GetBody Method

Message.GetBody Method

 

Retrieves the body of this Message instance.

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

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodGetBody<T>()

Retrieves the body of this Message instance.

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetBody<T>(XmlObjectSerializer)

Retrieves the body of this Message using the specified serializer.

After a message is created, the message body can be read using the GetBody methods on the returned message. The returned object encapsulates all the child elements within the Body element. Because the body of a message is a stream, it can only be written once, or read once.

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

The following code example shows a client that uses the channel factory to send a message and read the reply.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using System.ServiceModel;
using System.ServiceModel.Channels;
using System.Runtime.Serialization;

namespace ConsoleApplication1
{
    class client
    {


        static void RunClient()
        {
            //Step1: create a binding with just HTTP
            CustomBinding binding = new CustomBinding();
            binding.Elements.Add(new HttpTransportBindingElement());
            //Step2: use the binding to build the channel factory
            IChannelFactory<IRequestChannel> factory =
            binding.BuildChannelFactory<IRequestChannel>(
                             new BindingParameterCollection());
            //open the channel factory
            factory.Open();
            //Step3: use the channel factory to create a channel
            IRequestChannel channel = factory.CreateChannel(
               new EndpointAddress("http://localhost:8080/channelapp"));
            channel.Open();
            //Step4: create a message
            Message requestmessage = Message.CreateMessage(
                MessageVersion.Soap12WSAddressing10,
                "http://contoso.com/someaction",
                 "This is the body data");
            //send message
            Message replymessage = channel.Request(requestmessage);
            Console.WriteLine("Reply message received");
            Console.WriteLine("Reply action: {0}",
                                  replymessage.Headers.Action);
            string data = replymessage.GetBody<string>();
            Console.WriteLine("Reply content: {0}", data);
            //Step5: don't forget to close the message
            requestmessage.Close();
            replymessage.Close();
            //don't forget to close the channel
            channel.Close();
            //don't forget to close the factory
            factory.Close();
        }
        public static void Main()
        {
            Console.WriteLine("Press [ENTER] when service is ready");
            Console.ReadLine();
            RunClient();
            Console.WriteLine("Press [ENTER] to exit");
            Console.ReadLine();
        }
    }
