public abstract string ContentType { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The content type that is supported by the message encoder.

The content type is a Multipurpose Internet Mail Exchange (MIME) header that appears at the beginning of a MIME message as well as within the separate body parts. Content-type headers are used to specify the media type and subtype of data in the body of a message and to fully specify the media type and subtype of data in the body of a message and to specify the character encoding (optional) of the data. An example of a MIME content type that can be supported: “application/soap+xml; charset=’utf8’”.

A grammar that details the syntax of the content-type header is described in RFC 2045, Section 5.1. RFC 2046 provides detailed information about MIME media types and their parameters.
