The following code examples demonstrate a custom message contract that uses the MessageContractAttribute, MessageHeaderAttribute, and MessageBodyMemberAttribute attributes to create custom, strongly-typed messages to use as parameters. In this case, there are three data members that are serialized into the body element of the SOAP message: sourceAccount, targetAccount, and the amount value, (which is serialized into an element with the name transactionAmount). In addition, the IsAudited SOAP header element resides in the namespace.


The Operation and Account types must also have a data contract.

public class BankingTransaction  
  [MessageHeader] public Operation operation;  
  [MessageHeader(Namespace="")] public bool IsAudited;  
  [MessageBody] public Account sourceAccount;  
  [MessageBody] public Account targetAccount;  
  [MessageBody(Name="transactionAmount")] public int amount;
