Port Class

Defines an individual endpoint contained in the XML Web service. This class cannot be inherited.

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

public sealed class Port : NamedItem

This class specifies a single address (URI) for a Binding, which defines message format and protocol details for operations and messages for a given PortType. The Binding property gets or sets those values for a specified Port.

This class corresponds to the Web Services Description Language (WSDL) <port> element, which is enclosed by the <service> element. For more information about WSDL, see the specification at http://www.w3.org/TR/wsdl.

The following examples creates a Port and adds it to the Ports collection of an existing ServiceDescription named myDescription.

// Create a Port.
Port postPort = new Port();
postPort.Name = "PortServiceHttpPost";
postPort.Binding = new XmlQualifiedName("s0:PortServiceHttpPost");

// Create an HttpAddressBinding.
HttpAddressBinding postAddressBinding = new HttpAddressBinding();
postAddressBinding.Location = 

// Add the HttpAddressBinding to the Port.

// Get the Service of the postPort.
Service myService = postPort.Service;

// Print the service name for the port.
Console.WriteLine("This is the service name of the postPort:*" +
   myDescription.Services[0].Ports[0].Service.Name + "*");

// Add the Port to the PortCollection of the ServiceDescription.
// Create a Port.
Port* postPort = new Port();
postPort->Name = S"PortServiceHttpPost";
postPort->Binding = new XmlQualifiedName(S"s0:PortServiceHttpPost");

// Create an HttpAddressBinding.
HttpAddressBinding* postAddressBinding = new HttpAddressBinding();
postAddressBinding->Location = 

// Add the HttpAddressBinding to the Port.

// Get the Service of the postPort.
Service* myService = postPort->Service;

// Print the service name for the port.
Console::WriteLine(S"This is the service name of the postPort:*{0}*",

// Add the Port to the PortCollection of the ServiceDescription.
