UrlParameterWriter Class

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

The UrlParameterWriter type exposes the following members.

Public methodUrlParameterWriterInitializes a new instance of the UrlParameterWriter class.

Public propertyRequestEncodingGets or sets the encoding used to write parameters to the HTTP request. (Inherited from UrlEncodedParameterWriter.)
Public propertyUsesWriteRequestGets a value that indicates whether Web method parameter values are serialized to the out-going HTTP request body. (Inherited from MimeParameterWriter.)

Protected methodEncode(TextWriter, Object[])Encodes all the parameter values for a Web method and writes them to the specified writer. (Inherited from UrlEncodedParameterWriter.)
Protected methodEncode(TextWriter, String, Object)Encodes a specified parameter value and writes it to the specified writer. (Inherited from UrlEncodedParameterWriter.)
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetInitializerReturns an initializer for the specified method. (Inherited from UrlEncodedParameterWriter.)
Public methodGetInitializers(LogicalMethodInfo[])When overridden in a derived class, returns an array of initializer objects corresponding to an input array of method definitions. (Inherited from MimeFormatter.)
Public methodGetRequestUrlWrites Web method parameter values to the query string of an HTTP request. (Overrides MimeParameterWriter.GetRequestUrl(String, Object[]).)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodInitializeInitializes an instance. (Inherited from UrlEncodedParameterWriter.)
Public methodInitializeRequestWhen overridden in a derived class, initializes the out-going HTTP request. (Inherited from MimeParameterWriter.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodWriteRequestWhen 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, 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.
