Public methodMimePartInitializes a new instance of the MimePart class.

Public propertyExtensionsGets the collection of MIME extensibility elements for the part of the MimeMultipartRelatedBinding of which the MimePart is a member.
Public propertyHandledGets or sets a value indicating whether the ServiceDescriptionFormatExtension is used by the import process when the extensibility element is imported. (Inherited from ServiceDescriptionFormatExtension.)
Public propertyParentGets the parent of the ServiceDescriptionFormatExtension. (Inherited from ServiceDescriptionFormatExtension.)
Public propertyRequiredGets or sets a value indicating whether the ServiceDescriptionFormatExtension is necessary for the action to which it refers. (Inherited from ServiceDescriptionFormatExtension.)

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)

The following example demonstrates the use of the methods and properties exposed by the MimePart class.

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

public class MyMimePart
   public static void Main()
      ServiceDescription myServiceDescription  = 
      ServiceDescriptionCollection myServiceDescriptionCol = 
         new ServiceDescriptionCollection();
      XmlQualifiedName myXmlQualifiedName = 
         new XmlQualifiedName("MimeServiceHttpPost","");

      // Create the Binding.
      Binding myBinding = 
      OperationBinding myOperationBinding= null;
      for(int i=0; i< myBinding.Operations.Count; i++) 
            myOperationBinding = myBinding.Operations[i];
      // Create the OutputBinding.
      OutputBinding myOutputBinding = myOperationBinding.Output;
      MimeXmlBinding myMimeXmlBinding = new MimeXmlBinding();
      myMimeXmlBinding.Part = "body";

      // Create the MimePart.
      MimePart myMimePart = new MimePart();
      MimeMultipartRelatedBinding myMimePartRelatedBinding =
         new MimeMultipartRelatedBinding();

      // Add the MimePart to the MimePartRelatedBinding.
         "MimePart_3_Output_CS.wsdl has been generated successfully.");
