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

public class SoapFaultSubCode

A SOAP 1.2 fault contains a Code element and among other things an optional Subcode element. The Code element specifies the type of error that occurred using a limited number of pre-defined error codes specified by the SOAP protocol, whereas the Subcode element allows the sender of the SOAP fault to provide an application specific error code. This class represents the contents of the Subcode element.

XML Web services return a SOAP fault by throwing a SoapException and.NET clients receive a SOAP fault by catching a SoapException. A SoapException has the Code property representing the Code element and the Subcode property representing the Subcode element.
