MessageParameterAttribute Constructor ()

 

Initializes a new instance of the MessageParameterAttribute class.

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

Public Sub New

The following code example shows the use of MessageParameterAttribute to establish the name of the parameter and the return value in metadata.

Imports System.ServiceModel
Imports System.Text

Namespace Microsoft.WCF.Documentation
  <ServiceContract(Namespace:="http://microsoft.wcf.documentation")> _
  Public Interface ISampleService
	<OperationContract> _
	Function SampleMethod(<MessageParameter(Name := "Input")> ByVal msg As String) As <MessageParameter(Name := "Output")> String
  End Interface

'  
'   The preceding use of MessageParameterAttribute generates the following XSD:
'
'<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> 
'  <xs:schema 
'    elementFormDefault="qualified" 
'    targetNamespace="http://microsoft.wcf.documentation" 
'    xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" 
'    xmlns:tns="http://microsoft.wcf.documentation">
'    <xs:element name="SampleMethod">
'      <xs:complexType>
'        <xs:sequence>
'          <xs:element minOccurs="0" name="Input" nillable="true" type="xs:string" /> 
'        </xs:sequence>
'      </xs:complexType>
'    </xs:element>
'    <xs:element name="SampleMethodResponse">
'      <xs:complexType>
'        <xs:sequence>
'          <xs:element minOccurs="0" name="Output" nillable="true" type="xs:string" /> 
'        </xs:sequence>
'      </xs:complexType>
'    </xs:element>
'  </xs:schema>
'   
'   And the message sent is edited for clarity:
'  <s:Body>
'    <SampleMethod xmlns="http://microsoft.wcf.documentation">
'      <Input>hello!</Input>
'    </SampleMethod>
'  </s:Body>   
'   

The following example shows the generated service contract for the preceding service. Note that the name of the parameter is now Input.

Public Interface ISampleService

    <System.ServiceModel.OperationContractAttribute(Action:="http://microsoft.wcf.documentation/ISampleService/SampleMethod", _
                    ReplyAction:="http://microsoft.wcf.documentation/ISampleService/SampleMethodResponse")> _
    Function SampleMethod(ByVal Input As String) As <System.ServiceModel.MessageParameterAttribute(Name:="Output")> String
End Interface
