MessageContractMemberAttribute.Name Property

Specifies the name of the element that corresponds to this member.

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

public string Name { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The name of the element that corresponds to this member. This string must be a valid XML element name.

The following code examples demonstrate a custom message contract that uses the MessageContractAttribute, MessageHeaderAttribute, and MessageBodyMemberAttribute attributes to create custom, strongly-typed messages to use as parameters. In this case, there are three data members that are serialized into the body element of the SOAP message: sourceAccount, targetAccount, and the amount value, (which is serialized into an element with the name transactionAmount). In addition, the IsAudited SOAP header element resides in the http://schemas.contosobank.com/auditing/2005 namespace.

NoteNote:

The Operation and Account types must also have a data contract.

[MessageContract]
public class BankingTransaction
{
  [MessageHeader] public Operation operation;
  [MessageHeader(Namespace="http://schemas.contosobank.com/auditing/2005")] public bool IsAudited;
  [MessageBody] public Account sourceAccount;
  [MessageBody] public Account targetAccount;
  [MessageBody(Name="transactionAmount")] public int amount;
