NopReturnReader 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 NopReturnReader class provides a non-reading implementation of the interface of the abstract class MimeReturnReader.

You typically will not need to use the NopReturnReader class. Instead, when the Wsdl.exe tool generates client proxy code according to the HTTP-GET or HTTP-POST implementations, .it applies the HttpMethodAttribute to each Web method and, by default, sets the attribute's ReturnFormatter property to XmlReturnReader, another class derived from MimeReturnReader. Wsdl.exe sets the property to NopReturnReader if it is otherwise unable to determine a value.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
