Assembly: System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|Style||Gets or sets the SOAP style of the XmlSerializer.|
|SupportFaults||Gets or sets a value that indicates that the XmlSerializer should be used for reading and writing faults.|
|TypeId||When implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|Use||Gets or sets a value that specifies the format to use.|
|Equals||Infrastructure. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Returns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|IsDefaultAttribute||When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|Match||When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|_Attribute.GetIDsOfNames||Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|_Attribute.GetTypeInfo||Retrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|_Attribute.GetTypeInfoCount||Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1). (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|_Attribute.Invoke||Provides access to properties and methods exposed by an object. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
This attribute is similar to the DataContractFormatAttribute attribute. Both attributes can be applied to a method, class, or interface.
A method can have either of the two attributes applied, but not both. Any operation that has neither applied uses the attribute applied to the containing class. If the containing class does not have either attribute applied, the DataContractSerializer is used.
Applying the attribute also causes a XmlSerializerOperationBehavior to be created at runtime. The behavior allows customization at runtime of the serializer behavior.
The following example applies the to an interface.
<ServiceContract(), XmlSerializerFormat(Style := OperationFormatStyle.Rpc, _ Use := OperationFormatUse.Encoded)> _ Public Interface ICalculator <OperationContract(), XmlSerializerFormat(Style := OperationFormatStyle.Rpc, _ Use := OperationFormatUse.Encoded)> _ Function Add(ByVal a As Double, ByVal b As Double) As Double End Interface
