SoapBodyBinding Class

Represents an extensibility element added to an InputBinding or an OutputBinding.

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

[XmlFormatExtensionAttribute("body", "", 
	typeof(InputBinding), typeof(OutputBinding), typeof(MimePart))]
public class SoapBodyBinding : ServiceDescriptionFormatExtension

The SoapBodyBinding type exposes the following members.

Public methodSoapBodyBindingInitializes a new instance of the SoapBodyBinding class.

Public propertyEncodingGets or sets a string containing a list of space-delimited URIs. The URIs represent the encoding style (or styles) to be used to encode messages within the SOAP body.
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 propertyNamespaceGet or sets the URI representing the location of the specifications for encoding of content not specifically defined by the Encoding property.
Public propertyParentGets the parent of the ServiceDescriptionFormatExtension. (Inherited from ServiceDescriptionFormatExtension.)
Public propertyPartsGets or sets a value indicating which parts of the transmitted message appear within the SOAP body portion of the transmission.
Public propertyPartsStringGets or sets a value indicating which parts of the transmitted message appear within the SOAP body portion of the transmission.
Public propertyRequiredGets or sets a value indicating whether the ServiceDescriptionFormatExtension is necessary for the action to which it refers. (Inherited from ServiceDescriptionFormatExtension.)
Public propertyUseIndicates whether the message parts are encoded using specified encoding rules, or define the concrete schema of the message.

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.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

This class specifies how messages, either abstract type definitions or concrete schema definitions, appear within the SOAP body element of the transmission.
