Provides URL encoding functionality for writers of out-going request parameters for Web service clients implemented using HTTP but without SOAP.

public abstract class UrlEncodedParameterWriter : MimeParameterWriter


System.Web.Services.Protocols.UrlEncodedParameterWriter and other classes in the System.Web.Services.Protocols namespace support the .NET Framework's implementations of Web services via the HTTP-GET and HTTP-POST operations. Web service writers and readers serialize and deserialize, respectively, between the parameters or return objects of Web methods and the HTTP request or response streams. Web service writers and readers use HTTP for transport but don't exchange messages using the SOAP standard.

The abstract System.Web.Services.Protocols.UrlEncodedParameterWriter class inherits from the abstract System.Web.Services.Protocols.MimeParameterWriter class, adding URL encoding functionality for client-side writing of Web method parameters into HTTP request streams.

You typically will not need to use System.Web.Services.Protocols.UrlEncodedParameterWriter or its descendant classes directly. Instead, when the Wsdl.exe tool generates client proxy code according to the HTTP-GET or HTTP-POST implementations, it applies the System.Web.Services.Protocols.HttpMethodAttribute to each Web method and sets the attribute's HttpMethodAttribute.ParameterFormatter property to the appropriate type.


The Hypertext Transfer Protocol--HTTP/1.1 specifies the use of a variation on Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME) message format, which itself allows e-mail messages to specify different content types, both text and binary.
