Use BaseTrue

Reads return values from XML that is encoded in the body of incoming responses for Web service clients implemented using HTTP but without SOAP.

public class XmlReturnReader : MimeReturnReader


Initializes a new instance of the XmlReturnReader class.


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.(Overrides MimeFormatter.GetInitializer(LogicalMethodInfo).)


Returns an array of initializer objects corresponding to an input array of method definitions.(Overrides MimeFormatter.GetInitializers(LogicalMethodInfo[]).)


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


Initializes an instance.(Overrides MimeFormatter.Initialize(Object).)


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

System_CAPS_pubmethodRead(WebResponse, Stream)

Gets a return value deserialized from an XML document contained in the HTTP response.(Overrides MimeReturnReader.Read(WebResponse, Stream).)


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

XmlReturnReader 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 XmlReturnReader class implements the client-side reading of XML documents into Web method return values. The XML documents are encoded in the body of HTTP responses.

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