The Binding class corresponds to the Web Services Description Language (WSDL) <binding> element enclosed by the root <definitions> element. For more information about WSDL, see the specification at http://www.w3.org/TR/wsdl/.

The following example demonstrates a typical use of the Binding class.

// Get Binding Name = "MathServiceSoap".
myBinding = myServiceDescription.Bindings["MathServiceHttpGet"];
if (myBinding != null)
{
   Console.WriteLine("\n\nName : " + myBinding.Name);
   Console.WriteLine("Type : " + myBinding.Type);
}
