OperationFormatStyle Enumeration

 

Represents the SOAP style that determines how the WSDL metadata for the service is formatted.

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

public enum OperationFormatStyle

Member nameDescription
Document

Causes the WSDL representation to contain a single element that represents the document that is exchanged for the operation.

Rpc

Causes the WSDL representation of messages exchanged for an operation and contains parameters as if it were a remote procedure call.

By default, the message body is formatted with the Style set to Document. The style RPC means that the WSDL representation of messages exchanged for an operation contains parameters as if it were a remote procedure call. The following is an example.

<wsdl:message name="IUseAndStyleCalculator_Add_InputMessage">
  <wsdl:part name="n1" type="xsd:double"/>
  <wsdl:part name="n2" type="xsd:double"/>
</wsdl:message>

Setting the style to Document means that the WSDL representation contains a single element that represents the document that is exchanged for an operation as shown in the following example.

<wsdl:message name="IUseAndStyleCalculator_Add_InputMessage">
  <wsdl:part name="parameters" element="tns:Add"/>
</wsdl:message>

Use the System.ServiceModel.XmlSerializerFormatAttribute to set this value.

The following code shows how to use this enumeration.

[ServiceContract(Namespace="http://Microsoft.ServiceModel.Samples"),
XmlSerializerFormat(Style = OperationFormatStyle.Rpc, 
                                 Use = OperationFormatUse.Encoded)]
public interface IUseAndStyleCalculator
{
    [OperationContract]
    double Add(double n1, double n2);
    [OperationContract]
    double Subtract(double n1, double n2);
    [OperationContract]
    double Multiply(double n1, double n2);
    [OperationContract]
    double Divide(double n1, double n2);
}
