Public Enum MetadataExchangeClientMode


HttpGet HttpGet HttpGet HttpGet 1

A WS-Transfer Get request is used.


The following code example shows the use of MetadataExchangeClient to specify a download binding, resolve any contained references to metadata, and download the metadata.

// Get metadata documents.
Console.WriteLine("URI of the metadata documents retreived:");
MetadataExchangeClient metaTransfer
  = new MetadataExchangeClient(httpGetMetaAddress.Uri, MetadataExchangeClientMode.HttpGet);
metaTransfer.ResolveMetadataReferences = true;
MetadataSet otherDocs = metaTransfer.GetMetadata();
foreach (MetadataSection doc in otherDocs.MetadataSections)
    Console.WriteLine(doc.Dialect + " : " + doc.Identifier);


Use the MetadataExchangeClientMode with the System.ServiceModel.Description.MetadataExchangeClient to specify whether metadata is downloaded using an HTTP GET or WS-Transfer Get request.
