ValueCollectionParameterReader Class

Serves as a base class for readers of incoming request parameters for Web services implemented using HTTP but without SOAP.

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

public abstract class ValueCollectionParameterReader : MimeParameterReader

The ValueCollectionParameterReader type exposes the following members.

Protected methodValueCollectionParameterReaderInitializes a new instance of the ValueCollectionParameterReader class.

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. (Overrides MimeFormatter.GetInitializer(LogicalMethodInfo).)
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 methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodInitializeInitializes an instance. (Overrides MimeFormatter.Initialize(Object).)
Public methodStatic memberIsSupported(LogicalMethodInfo)Determines whether a method definition's parameter definitions are supported by the ValueCollectionParameterReader class.
Public methodStatic memberIsSupported(ParameterInfo)Determines whether a particular parameter type is supported by the ValueCollectionParameterReader class.
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodRead(HttpRequest)When overridden in a derived class, deserializes an HTTP request into an array of Web method parameter values. (Inherited from MimeParameterReader.)
Protected methodRead(NameValueCollection)Translates a collection of name/value pairs into an array of objects representing method parameter values.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

ValueCollectionParameterReader 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 ValueCollectionParameterReader class provides, among other methods, a common Read method for all service-side readers of collections of name/value pairs into Web method parameters. The name/value pairs have been parsed from an incoming HTTP request.

You typically will not need to use ValueCollectionParameterReader or its descendant classes directly. The appropriate types are used according to settings in an ASP.NET configuration file (Web.config).
