Represents the configuration element that specifies the character encoding used for non-SOAP messages. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace:   System.ServiceModel.Configuration
Assembly:  System.ServiceModel.Web (in System.ServiceModel.Web.dll)

public sealed class WebMessageEncodingElement : BindingElementExtensionElement


Initializes a new instance of the WebMessageEncodingElement class.


Gets the type of the binding element enabled by this configuration element.(Overrides BindingElementExtensionElement.BindingElementType.)


Gets the name of this configuration element.(Inherited from ServiceModelExtensionElement.)


Gets a reference to the top-level Configuration instance that represents the configuration hierarchy that the current ConfigurationElement instance belongs to.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)


Gets an ElementInformation object that contains the non-customizable information and functionality of the ConfigurationElement object. (Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)


Gets the ConfigurationElementProperty object that represents the ConfigurationElement object itself.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)


Gets or sets a property or attribute of this configuration element.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)


Gets or sets a property, attribute, or child element of this configuration element.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)


Gets the collection of locked attributes.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)


Gets the collection of locked elements.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)


Gets the collection of locked attributes (Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)


Gets the collection of locked elements.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)


Gets or sets a value indicating whether the element is locked.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)


Gets or sets a value that specifies the maximum number of messages that can be read simultaneously without allocating new readers.


Gets or sets a value that specifies the maximum number of messages that can be sent simultaneously without allocating new writers.


Gets the collection of properties.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)


Gets or sets constraints on the complexity of SOAP messages that can be processed by endpoints configured with this binding.


Gets or sets the type name of a WebContentTypeMapper that specifies the format to which the content type of an incoming message is mapped.


Gets or sets the character set encoding to be used for emitting messages on the binding.


Applies the content of a specified binding element to this binding configuration section.(Overrides BindingElementExtensionElement.ApplyConfiguration(BindingElement).)


Copies the content of the specified configuration section to this element.(Overrides ServiceModelExtensionElement.CopyFrom(ServiceModelExtensionElement).)


When overridden in a derived class, returns a custom binding element object. (Inherited from BindingElementExtensionElement.)

System_CAPS_protmethodDeserializeElement(XmlReader, Boolean)

Reads XML from the configuration file.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)


Compares the current ConfigurationElement instance to the specified object.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)


Gets a unique value representing the current ConfigurationElement instance.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)


Sets the ConfigurationElement object to its initial state.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)


Used to initialize a default set of values for the ConfigurationElement object.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)


Initializes this binding configuration section with the content of the specified binding element.(Inherited from BindingElementExtensionElement.)


Indicates whether this configuration element has been modified since it was last saved or loaded, when implemented in a derived class.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)


Gets a value indicating whether the ConfigurationElement object is read-only.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)


Resets the internal state of the ConfigurationElement object, including the locks and the properties collections.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)


Resets the value of the IsModified method to false when implemented in a derived class.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)

System_CAPS_protmethodSerializeElement(XmlWriter, Boolean)

Writes the contents of this configuration element to the configuration file when implemented in a derived class.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)

System_CAPS_protmethodSerializeToXmlElement(XmlWriter, String)

Writes the outer tags of this configuration element to the configuration file when implemented in a derived class.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)


Sets the IsReadOnly property for the ConfigurationElement object and all subelements.(Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)


Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodUnmerge(ConfigurationElement, ConfigurationElement, ConfigurationSaveMode)

Modifies the ConfigurationElement object to remove all values that should not be saved. (Inherited from ConfigurationElement.)

Encoding is the process of transforming a set of Unicode characters into a sequence of bytes. The types of encoding for non-SOAP messages are text, JSON and raw.

The WebMessageEncodingElement represents the WebMessageEncodingBindingElement in configuration. The WebMessageEncodingBindingElement provides the extensibility point for plugging in a composite encoder that can be used to override how incoming message content-types map to the various inner encoders (text/JSON/raw binary) provided by Windows Communication Foundation (WCF). The composite message encoder does not support SOAP or WS-Addressing.
