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

This enumeration supports a bitwise combination of its member values.

public enum class CodeGenerationOptions
public enum CodeGenerationOptions
type CodeGenerationOptions = 
Public Enum CodeGenerationOptions


EnableDataBinding 16

Enables data binding.

GenerateNewAsync 2

Creates events for the asynchronous invocation of Web methods.

GenerateOldAsync 4

Creates Begin and End methods for the asynchronous invocation of Web methods.

GenerateOrder 8

Generates explicitly ordered serialization code as specified through the Order property of the XmlAnyElementAttribute, XmlArrayAttribute, and XmlElementAttribute attributes.

GenerateProperties 1

None 0

Represents primitive types by fields and primitive types by System namespace types.


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

// Generate properties to represent primitive values.
importer->CodeGenerationOptions = System::Xml::Serialization::CodeGenerationOptions::GenerateProperties;
// Generate properties to represent primitive values.
importer.CodeGenerationOptions = System.Xml.Serialization.CodeGenerationOptions.GenerateProperties;
