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

public enum OperationFormatUse

Member nameDescription
Encoded

Implies that the schemas in the WSDL are abstract specifications that are encoded according to the rules found in SOAP 1.1 section 5.

Literal

Implies that the message is a literal instance of the schema in the WSDL.

The default value is Literal. Literal means that the message is a literal instance of the schema in the WSDL as shown in the following Document/Literal example.

<Add xmlns="http://Microsoft.ServiceModel.Samples">
  <n1>100</n1>
  <n2>15.99</n2>
 </Add>

Encoded means that the schemas in the WSDL are abstract specifications that are encoded according to the rules found in SOAP 1.1 section 5. The following is an RPC/Encoded example.

<q1:Add xmlns:q1="http://Microsoft.ServiceModel.Samples">
  <n1 xsi:type="xsd:double" xmlns="">100</n1>
  <n2 xsi:type="xsd:double" xmlns="">15.99</n2>
 </q1:Add>

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);
}
