IOperationContractGenerationExtension.GenerateOperation Method

Implement to modify the code document object model prior to the contract generation process.

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

void GenerateOperation(
	OperationContractGenerationContext context
)

Parameters

context
Type: System.ServiceModel.Description.OperationContractGenerationContext

The working context that contains the System.CodeDom types necessary to modify the generated operation.

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 GenerateOperation method is called once for each contract.

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)
		{
      Console.Write("ImportContract");
			// 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#.

/// From WSDL Documentation: 
///  
/// <summary>The string for the Name data member.</summary>  
/// 
[System.Runtime.Serialization.DataMemberAttribute()]
public string Name
{
    get
    {
        return this.NameField;
    }
    set
    {
        this.NameField = value;
    }
}
