	CodeCompileUnit codeCompileUnit,
	WebReferenceOptions options


Type: System.Web.Services.Description.WebReferenceCollection

A WebReferenceCollection of Web references to compile.

Type: System.CodeDom.Compiler.CodeDomProvider

A CodeDomProvider that specifies the code provider.

Type: System.CodeDom.CodeCompileUnit

A CodeCompileUnit that specifies the unit into which code is compiled.

Type: System.Web.Services.Description.WebReferenceOptions

A WebReferenceOptions that specifies code generation options.

Return Value

Type: System.Collections.Specialized.StringCollection
A StringCollection of compiler warnings.

The services description document collection in each WebReference member of the webReferences collection should contain only ServiceDescription and XmlSchema objects. This method is unable to interpret DiscoveryDocument objects.

If any of the XML Web service methods in the webReferences collection share custom parameter or return types, those types are also shared among the proxy methods generated. This is an important advantage over the situation in which each proxy is compiled separately, because in that case such types do not interoperate.
