[XmlFormatExtensionPointAttribute("Extensions")]
public sealed class Import : DocumentableItem

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodImport()

Initializes a new instance of the Import class.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyDocumentation

Gets or sets the text documentation for the instance of the DocumentableItem.(Inherited from DocumentableItem.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyDocumentationElement

Gets or sets the documentation element for the DocumentableItem.(Inherited from DocumentableItem.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyExtensibleAttributes

Gets or sets an array of type XmlAttribute that represents attribute extensions of WSDL to comply with Web Services Interoperability (WS-I) Basic Profile 1.1.(Inherited from DocumentableItem.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyExtensions

Gets the ServiceDescriptionFormatExtensionCollection associated with this Import class.(Overrides DocumentableItem.Extensions.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyLocation

Gets or sets the value of the XML location attribute of the import element.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyNamespace

Gets or sets the value of the XML namespace attribute of the import element.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyNamespaces

Gets or sets the dictionary of namespace prefixes and namespaces used to preserve namespace prefixes and namespaces when a ServiceDescription object is constructed.(Inherited from DocumentableItem.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyServiceDescription

Gets a reference to the ServiceDescription of which the Import is a member.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

The Web Services Description Language (WSDL) import element that is enclosed by the definitions element allows the separation of different parts of the XML Web service into different documents, which can then be imported as required. Each document's URL is associated with a unique XML tag prefix that represents the XML namespace for that document's elements. For more information about WSDL, see the specification at http://www.w3.org/TR/wsdl/. For more information about XML namespaces, see the Namespace property.

The following example shows a user-defined method that creates a new instance of the Import class.

using System;
using System.Web.Services.Description;
using System.Collections;
using System.Xml;

class MySample
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      Console.WriteLine("Import Sample");
      ServiceDescription myServiceDescription = 
         ServiceDescription.Read("StockQuote_cs.wsdl");
      myServiceDescription.Imports.Add(
         CreateImport("http://localhost/stockquote/schemas",
         "http://localhost/stockquote/stockquote_cs.xsd"));
      // Save the ServiceDescripition to an external file.
      myServiceDescription.Write("StockQuote_cs.wsdl");
      Console.WriteLine(
         "Successfully added import to WSDL document 'StockQuote_cs.wsdl'");

      // Print the import collection to the console.
      PrintImportCollection("StockQuote_cs.wsdl");
      myServiceDescription = 
         ServiceDescription.Read("StockQuoteService_cs.wsdl");
      myServiceDescription.Imports.Insert(
         0,CreateImport("http://localhost/stockquote/definitions",
         "http://localhost/stockquote/stockquote_cs.wsdl"));
      // Save the ServiceDescripition to an external file.
      myServiceDescription.Write("StockQuoteService_cs.wsdl");
      Console.WriteLine("");
      Console.WriteLine("Successfully added import to WSDL " +
         "document 'StockQuoteService_cs.wsdl'");

      //Print the import collection to the console.
      PrintImportCollection("StockQuoteService_cs.wsdl");
   }
   // Creates an Import object with namespace and location.
   public static Import CreateImport(string targetNamespace, 
      string targetlocation)
   {
      Import myImport = new Import();
      myImport.Location = targetlocation;
      myImport.Namespace = targetNamespace;
      return myImport;
   }

   public static void PrintImportCollection(string fileName_wsdl)
   {
      // Read import collection properties from generated WSDL file.
      ServiceDescription myServiceDescription1 = 
         ServiceDescription.Read(fileName_wsdl);
      ImportCollection myImportCollection = myServiceDescription1.Imports;
      Console.WriteLine("Enumerating Import Collection for file '" + 
         fileName_wsdl +"'...");

      // Print Import properties to console.
      for(int i =0; i < myImportCollection.Count; ++i)
      {
         Console.WriteLine("Namespace : " + myImportCollection[i].Namespace);
         Console.WriteLine("Location  : " + myImportCollection[i].Location);
         Console.WriteLine("ServiceDescription  : " + 
            myImportCollection[i].ServiceDescription.Name);
      }
   }
}
