IOperationContractGenerationExtension Interface

Defines the methods called during contract generation that can be used to modify the generated code for an operation.

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

public interface class IOperationContractGenerationExtension

Implement the IOperationContractGenerationExtension interface on an operation behavior (a System.ServiceModel.Description::IOperationBehavior type) to enable you to modify the code generated when a contract or endpoint is compiled into code. Typically, a custom System.ServiceModel.Description::IWsdlImportExtension inserts a custom operation behavior into the OperationDescription::Behaviors collection during the call to IWsdlImportExtension::ImportContract or IWsdlImportExtension::ImportEndpoint.

The following code example shows the implementation of the GenerateOperation method that adds a string to the comments section of the operation using the System.CodeDom namespace.

The following code example shows how the operation behavior that implements IOperationContractGenerationExtension is inserted into the OperationDescription::Behaviors collection during the call to IWsdlImportExtension::ImportContract.

		public void ImportContract(WsdlImporter importer, WsdlContractConversionContext context)
			// Contract Documentation 
			if (context.WsdlPortType.Documentation != null)
        context.Contract.Behaviors.Add(new WsdlDocumentationImporter(context.WsdlPortType.Documentation));
			// Operation Documentation 
			foreach (Operation operation in context.WsdlPortType.Operations)
				if (operation.Documentation != null)
					OperationDescription operationDescription = context.Contract.Operations.Find(operation.Name);
					if (operationDescription != null)
            operationDescription.Behaviors.Add(new WsdlDocumentationImporter(operation.Documentation));

Finally, the following code example shows the operation generated in both Visual Basic and C#.
