InputBinding Class


Provides a set of specifications for data formats and protocols used by the XML Web service for input messages. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace:   System.Web.Services.Description
Assembly:  System.Web.Services (in System.Web.Services.dll)

public ref class InputBinding sealed : MessageBinding


Initializes a new instance of the InputBinding class.


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


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


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.)


Gets the collection of extensibility elements associated with the current InputBinding.(Overrides DocumentableItem::Extensions.)


Gets or sets the name of the item.(Inherited from NamedItem.)


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.)


Gets the OperationBinding of which the current MessageBinding is a member.(Inherited from MessageBinding.)


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


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


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


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

The InputBinding class corresponds to the Web Services Description Language (WSDL) <input> element enclosed by the <operation> element, which in turn corresponds to the OperationBinding class. For more information about WSDL, see the specification at

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

// Used to create OperationBinding instances within 'Binding'.
static OperationBinding^ CreateOperationBinding( String^ operation, String^ targetNamespace )
   // Create OperationBinding for operation.
   OperationBinding^ myOperationBinding = gcnew OperationBinding;
   myOperationBinding->Name = operation;

   // Create InputBinding for operation.
   InputBinding^ myInputBinding = gcnew InputBinding;
   SoapBodyBinding^ mySoapBodyBinding = gcnew SoapBodyBinding;
   mySoapBodyBinding->Use = SoapBindingUse::Literal;
   myInputBinding->Extensions->Add( mySoapBodyBinding );

   // Create OutputBinding for operation.
   OutputBinding^ myOutputBinding = gcnew OutputBinding;
   myOutputBinding->Extensions->Add( mySoapBodyBinding );

   // Add InputBinding and OutputBinding to OperationBinding.
   myOperationBinding->Input = myInputBinding;
   myOperationBinding->Output = myOutputBinding;

   // Create an extensibility element for SoapOperationBinding.
   SoapOperationBinding^ mySoapOperationBinding = gcnew SoapOperationBinding;
   mySoapOperationBinding->Style = SoapBindingStyle::Document;
   mySoapOperationBinding->SoapAction = String::Concat( targetNamespace, operation );

   // Add the extensibility element SoapOperationBinding to OperationBinding.
   myOperationBinding->Extensions->Add( mySoapOperationBinding );
   return myOperationBinding;
