SoapException.DetailElementName Field

Gets an XmlQualifiedName that represents the Detail element of a SOAP Fault code.

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

public static readonly XmlQualifiedName DetailElementName

In building an XmlNode for the Detail property, the Name and Namespace properties of DetailElementName can be used to ensure consistency with the SOAP specification.

The following example sets the Detail property using the DetailElementName field and then throws a SoapException.


<%@ WebService Language="C#" class="ThrowSoapException"%>

using System;
using System.Web.Services;
using System.Web.Services.Protocols;
using System.Xml.Serialization;
using System.Xml;

public class ThrowSoapException : WebService 
{
    // This XML Web service method generates a SOAP client fault code 
    [WebMethod]
    public void myThrow(){

        // Build the detail element of the SOAP fault.
        System.Xml.XmlDocument doc = new System.Xml.XmlDocument();
        System.Xml.XmlNode node = doc.CreateNode(XmlNodeType.Element, SoapException.DetailElementName.Name, SoapException.DetailElementName.Namespace);


        // Build specific details for the SoapException.
        // Add first child of detail XML element.
        System.Xml.XmlNode details = doc.CreateNode(XmlNodeType.Element, "mySpecialInfo1", "http://tempuri.org/");
        System.Xml.XmlNode detailsChild = doc.CreateNode(XmlNodeType.Element, "childOfSpecialInfo", "http://tempuri.org/");
        details.AppendChild(detailsChild);


        // Add second child of detail XML element with an attribute.
        System.Xml.XmlNode details2 = doc.CreateNode(XmlNodeType.Element, "mySpecialInfo2", "http://tempuri.org/");
        XmlAttribute attr = doc.CreateAttribute("t", "attrName", "http://tempuri.org/");
        attr.Value = "attrValue";
        details2.Attributes.Append(attr);

        // Append the two child elements to the detail node.
        node.AppendChild(details);
        node.AppendChild(details2);


        // Throw the exception.    
        SoapException se = new SoapException("Fault occurred", SoapException.ClientFaultCode,Context.Request.Url.AbsoluteUri,node);

        throw se;
        return;    }
}
