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

public class MetadataConversionError

The MetadataConversionError type exposes the following members.

Public methodMetadataConversionError(String)Initializes a new instance of the MetadataConversionError class using the specified message.
Public methodMetadataConversionError(String, Boolean)Initializes a new instance of the MetadataConversionError class using the specified message and isWarning value.

Public propertyIsWarningGets a value that indicates whether the MetadataConversionError is a warning or an error.
Public propertyMessageGets the error or warning message.

Public methodEqualsReturns a value that indicates whether two MetadataConversionError objects have value equality. (Overrides Object.Equals(Object).)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeReturns a value that serves as a hash function for a MetadataConversionError object. (Overrides Object.GetHashCode().)
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.)

You typically use MetadataConversionError objects to determine whether classes that extend MetadataExporter and MetadataImporter have encountered an error or warning condition by checking the Errors and Errors properties after importing or exporting the metadata. Tools can use these error and warning messages to report metadata import and export problems to the user.
