The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

When overridden in a derived class, gets the SOAP version of the message.

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

abstract Version : MessageVersion with get

Property Value

Type: System.ServiceModel.Channels.MessageVersion

A MessageVersion object that represents the SOAP version.

Exception Condition

The message has been disposed of.

This value is immutable for the message. There are two possible values for the version: Soap11 and Soap12 that correspond to SOAP 1.1 and SOAP 1.2 respectively.

Knowing the underlying SOAP version is important because the structure of Message is firmly correlated with that of a SOAP message.


Inheritors must note that when overridden in a derived class, this method returns a MessageVersion object for the SOAP version of the message.
