Return Value

Type: System.Web.Services.Description.ServiceDescriptionImportWarnings

A ServiceDescriptionImportWarnings value that describes any error that occurred; or 0 if no error occurred.

After you have specified the ServiceDescriptions values to import and the Style property of the code to generate, call the Import method to initiate code generation.

The following example illustrates the use of the Import method.

// Import the service into the Code-DOM tree. This creates proxy code
// that uses the service.
ServiceDescriptionImportWarnings warning = importer.Import(nmspace,unit);

if (warning == 0)
    // Generate and print the proxy code in C#.
    CodeDomProvider provider = CodeDomProvider.CreateProvider("CSharp");
    provider.GenerateCodeFromCompileUnit(unit, Console.Out, new CodeGeneratorOptions() );
    // Print an error message.
