MessageContractMemberAttribute.Namespace Property

public string Namespace { get; set; }
member this.Namespace : string with get, set
Public Property Namespace As String

Property Value

A namespace URI of the element that corresponds to this member.


The following code examples demonstrate a custom message contract that uses the MessageContractAttribute, MessageHeaderAttribute, and MessageBodyMemberAttribute attributes (which all inherit from MessageContractMemberAttribute) to create custom typed messages to use in operations. In this case, there are three 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, and sourceAccount is encrypted and digitally signed.


The Operation and Account types must 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;
