IServiceContractGenerationExtension.GenerateContract Method (ServiceContractGenerationContext)


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

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)

Sub GenerateContract (
	context As ServiceContractGenerationContext


Type: System.ServiceModel.Description.ServiceContractGenerationContext

The code generated context to use to modify the code document prior to generation.

The following code example shows how to add an IServiceContractGenerationExtension to the ContractDescription.Behaviors property during the call to 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));

The following code examples show the implementation of GenerateContract that adds comments to the code generated for a service contract.

public void GenerateContract(ServiceContractGenerationContext context)
  Console.WriteLine("In generate contract.");

The following code example shows the generated comments on the service contract.

'''From WSDL Documentation:
'''<summary>The string for the Name data member.</summary> 
<System.Runtime.Serialization.DataMemberAttribute()>  _
Public Property Name() As String
        Return Me.NameField
    End Get
        Me.NameField = value
    End Set
End Property
