public XmlDictionaryReader GetReaderAtBodyContents()

Return Value

Type: System.Xml.XmlDictionaryReader

A XmlDictionaryReader object that accesses the body content of this message.

Exception Condition

The message is closed.


The message is empty, or has been copied, read or written.

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. 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.
