ServiceContractGenerationContext Class

Passed to the IServiceContractGenerationExtension.GenerateContract method to enable the modification of a service contract and its context prior to generating code.

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

public class ServiceContractGenerationContext

Use the ServiceContractGenerationContext object passed to the IServiceContractGenerationExtension.GenerateContract method to modify the code document object model prior to the generation of code. Typically, the System.ServiceModel.Description.IServiceContractGenerationExtension interface is implemented on a custom System.ServiceModel.Description.IWsdlImportExtension implementation that is used to import custom WSDL elements or otherwise modify the code at the service or operation level. To modify the code at the operation level, see System.ServiceModel.Description.IOperationContractGenerationExtension.

The following example shows the use of the ServiceContractGenerationContext object passed to the IServiceContractGenerationExtension.GenerateContract method to add code comments extracted from custom WSDL elements.

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

The following code example shows the resulting code comments.
