ScriptManager.Services Property

Gets a ServiceReferenceCollection object that contains a ServiceReference object for each Web service that ASP.NET exposes on the client for Ajax functionality.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI
Assembly:  System.Web.Extensions (in System.Web.Extensions.dll)

member Services : ServiceReferenceCollection

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.ServiceReferenceCollection
The ServiceReferenceCollection object for the current ScriptManager instance.

The ServiceReferenceCollection object that is returned by this property is a collection of ServiceReference objects, each of which represents a Web service that is registered with the ScriptManager control . You can define services in the ScriptManager control or in an associated ScriptManagerProxy control.

You can add services to the collection in markup by adding an asp:ServiceReference element to a Services element inside the asp:ScriptManager instance on the page, as shown in the following example.

<asp:ScriptManager ID="SM1" runat="server">
    <asp:ServiceReference Path="Service.asmx" />

You can also programmatically add a ServiceReference object to the Services collection by using the Add method of the ServiceReferenceCollection class.

Services are registered with the ScriptManager during the page's PreRender life-cycle stage.
