Elements

Element Description Data Type
Type The type of criterion. For more information, see Remarks. string

Remarks

For Java and the .NET languages, do not set the Type element because the value is determined by whether you instantiate a location or other criterion type.

If you generate the SOAP manually, use the type attribute of the <Criterion> node to specify the type of criterion, as shown in the following example.

<Criterion i:type="LocationCriterion" xmlns:i="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
   . . .
</Criterion>
