BodyStyle Property

WebInvokeAttribute.BodyStyle Property


Gets and sets the body style of the messages that are sent to and from the service operation.

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

public WebMessageBodyStyle BodyStyle { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.ServiceModel.Web.WebMessageBodyStyle

One of the WebMessageBodyStyle enumeration values.

When set to Bare, the result of the service operation is written directly to the body of the response message.


Operations that take a Message and return void are handled specially by the formatters. The formatters do not emit the wrapper name in the response even if BodyStyle is set to Wrapped.

The following example shows how to set the BodyStyle property.

[WebInvoke(UriTemplate = "Mult?x={x}&y={y}", BodyStyle = WebMessageBodyStyle.Bare)]
long Multiply(long x, long y);
