Serves as a non-acting reader of incoming response return values for Web service clients implemented using HTTP but without SOAP.
Assembly: System.Web.Services (in System.Web.Services.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetInitializer||Returns an initializer for the specified method. (Overrides MimeFormatter.GetInitializer(LogicalMethodInfo).)|
|GetInitializers(LogicalMethodInfo)||When overridden in a derived class, returns an array of initializer objects corresponding to an input array of method definitions. (Inherited from MimeFormatter.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Initialize||Initializes an instance. (Overrides MimeFormatter.Initialize(Object).)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Read||Returns null instead of deserializing the HTTP response stream into a Web method return value. (Overrides MimeReturnReader.Read(WebResponse, Stream).)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
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 class provides a non-reading implementation of the interface of the abstract class MimeReturnReader.
You typically will not need to use the 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 if it is otherwise unable to determine a value.
