HtmlFormParameterReader Class

Reads incoming request parameters for Web services implemented using HTTP, with name-value pairs encoded like an HTML form rather than as a SOAP message.

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

public class HtmlFormParameterReader : ValueCollectionParameterReader

The HtmlFormParameterReader type exposes the following members.

Public methodHtmlFormParameterReaderInitializes a new instance of the HtmlFormParameterReader class.

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 methodGetInitializerReturns an initializer for the specified method. (Inherited from ValueCollectionParameterReader.)
Public methodGetInitializers(LogicalMethodInfo[])When overridden in a derived class, returns an array of initializer objects corresponding to an input array of method definitions. (Inherited from MimeFormatter.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodInitializeInitializes an instance. (Inherited from ValueCollectionParameterReader.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodRead(HttpRequest)Reads name-value pairs into Web method parameter values. (Overrides MimeParameterReader.Read(HttpRequest).)
Protected methodRead(NameValueCollection)Translates a collection of name/value pairs into an array of objects representing method parameter values. (Inherited from ValueCollectionParameterReader.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

HtmlFormParameterReader and other classes in the System.Web.Services.Protocols namespace support the .NET Framework's implementations of Web services via the HTTP-GET and HTTP-POST operations. Web service writers and readers serialize and deserialize, respectively, between the parameters or return objects of Web methods and the HTTP request or response streams. Web service writers and readers use HTTP for transport but don't exchange messages using the SOAP standard. The service-side HtmlFormParameterReader class provides a Read method to read parameter name-value pairs that are encoded into the body of an HTTP request with the MIME type application/x-www-form-urlencoded.

You typically will not need to use HtmlFormParameterReader directly. HTTP-POST Web services are enabled when an ASP.NET configuration file's (Web.config) <protocols> element contains an <add> element whose name attribute's value is "HttpPost". The HtmlFormParameterReader class is automatically used when an HTTP-POST Web service is enabled and an applicable HTTP request is received.
