ASP.NET provides an extensibility mechanism for calling Web Services using SOAP. The extensibility mechanism revolves around a SoapExtension that can inspect or modify a message at specific stages in message processing on either the client or the server. This enumeration specifies the processing stage of the SoapMessage.

The following code example is a fragment of a SOAP extension, which implements the ProcessMessage method. Within the ProcessMessage method, processing of a SoapMessage is handled specific to the SoapMessageStage.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
