Use BaseTrue

Writes out-going request parameters for Web services implemented using HTTP with name-value pairs encoded in the URL's query string rather than as a SOAP message.

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

public class UrlParameterWriter : UrlEncodedParameterWriter


Initializes a new instance of the UrlParameterWriter class.


Gets or sets the encoding used to write parameters to the HTTP request.(Inherited from UrlEncodedParameterWriter.)


Gets a value that indicates whether Web method parameter values are serialized to the out-going HTTP request body.(Inherited from MimeParameterWriter.)

System_CAPS_protmethodEncode(TextWriter, Object[])

Encodes all the parameter values for a Web method and writes them to the specified writer.(Inherited from UrlEncodedParameterWriter.)

System_CAPS_protmethodEncode(TextWriter, String, Object)

Encodes a specified parameter value and writes it to the specified writer.(Inherited from UrlEncodedParameterWriter.)


Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)


Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)


Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)


Returns an initializer for the specified method.(Inherited from UrlEncodedParameterWriter.)


When overridden in a derived class, returns an array of initializer objects corresponding to an input array of method definitions.(Inherited from MimeFormatter.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetRequestUrl(String, Object[])

Writes Web method parameter values to the query string of an HTTP request.(Overrides MimeParameterWriter.GetRequestUrl(String, Object[]).)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)


Initializes an instance.(Inherited from UrlEncodedParameterWriter.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodInitializeRequest(WebRequest, Object[])

When overridden in a derived class, initializes the out-going HTTP request.(Inherited from MimeParameterWriter.)


Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)


Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodWriteRequest(Stream, Object[])

When overridden in a derived class, serializes Web method parameter values into a stream representing the outgoing HTTP request body.(Inherited from MimeParameterWriter.)

UrlParameterWriter 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 UrlParameterWriter class provides a client-side method, GetRequestUrl, to encode parameters name/value pairs into an HTTP request URL's query string. For example, in the URL http://contoso.com?a=1&b=2, a and b are parameter names, and 1 and 2 are their values.

You typically will not need to use UrlParameterWriter directly. Instead, when the Wsdl.exe tool generates client proxy code according to the HTTP-GET implementation, it applies the HttpMethodAttribute to each Web method and sets the attribute's ParameterFormatter property to UrlParameterWriter.
