MessageEncodingBindingElement Class

[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

The binding element that specifies the message version used to encode messages.

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

public abstract class MessageEncodingBindingElement : BindingElement

The MessageEncodingBindingElement type exposes the following members.

Protected methodMessageEncodingBindingElement()Initializes a new instance of the MessageEncodingBindingElement class.
Protected methodMessageEncodingBindingElement(MessageEncodingBindingElement)Initializes a new instance of the MessageEncodingBindingElement class initialized from an existing element.

Public propertyMessageVersionWhen overridden in a derived class, gets or sets the message version that can be handled by the message encoders produced by the message encoder factory.

Public methodBuildChannelFactory<TChannel>Initializes a channel factory for producing channels of a specified type from the binding context. (Inherited from BindingElement.)
Public methodCanBuildChannelFactory<TChannel>Returns a value that indicates whether the binding element can build a channel factory for a specific type of channel. (Inherited from BindingElement.)
Public methodCloneWhen overridden in a derived class, returns a copy of the binding element object. (Inherited from BindingElement.)
Public methodCreateMessageEncoderFactoryWhen overridden in a derived class, creates a factory for producing message encoders.
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetProperty<T>Returns the typed object requested, if present, from the appropriate layer in the channel stack. (Overrides BindingElement.GetProperty<T>(BindingContext).)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Encoding is the process of transforming a message into a sequence of bytes. Decoding is the reverse process. Windows Phone includes one type of encoding for SOAP messages: Text.

Use this class if you want to implement a custom message encoder. To implement your own custom message encoder, you must provide custom implementations of the following three abstract base classes:

Override the Encoder to return an instance of your custom MessageEncoder. Override the CreateMessageEncoderFactory method to return an instance of this factory.

The following code example shows how to implement a class derived from MessageEncodingBindingElement.
