CodeGenerationOptions Enumeration

Specifies various options to use when generating .NET Framework types for use with an XML Web Service.

This enumeration has a FlagsAttribute attribute that allows a bitwise combination of its member values.

Namespace: System.Xml.Serialization
Assembly: System.Xml (in system.xml.dll)

 Member nameDescription
EnableDataBindingEnables data binding. 
GenerateNewAsyncCreates events for the asynchronous invocation of Web methods. 
GenerateOldAsyncCreates Begin and End methods for the asynchronous invocation of Web methods. 
GenerateOrderGenerates explicitly ordered serialization code as specified through the Order property of the XmlAnyElementAttribute, XmlArrayAttribute, and XmlElementAttribute attributes.  
GeneratePropertiesRepresents primitive types by properties. 
NoneRepresents primitive types by fields and primitive types by System namespace types. 

A Web Service Description Language (WSDL) file typically describes a class in XML schema language as an xsd:complex type composed of various primitive xsd:complex and xsd:simple types. When generating a .NET Framework class that represents a given xsd:complex type, you must choose how to represent the various primitive types it contains.

By default, each primitive is implemented as a field. If you specify the GenerateProperties option, each primitive type is instead implemented as a property.

The following example illustrates the use of the CodeGenerationOptions enumeration to specify the behavior of a ServiceDescriptionImporter object.
