The following code example displays the titles of list definitions whose base type is 0 (the generic list type). This example requires that a using (Visual C#) or Imports (Visual Basic) directive be included for the System.Xml namespace.

Dim websService As New Web_Reference_Folder_Name.Webs()
websService.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials

Dim strMessage As String = ""

Dim myNode As XmlNode = websService.GetListTemplates()

Dim nodes As XmlNodeList = myNode.SelectNodes("*[@BaseType=0]")

Dim node As XmlNode

For Each node In  nodes

    strMessage = strMessage + node.Attributes("Name").Value + ControlChars.Lf

Next node

Web_Reference_Folder_Name.Webs websService = new Web_Reference_Folder_Name.Webs();
websService.Credentials= System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;

string strMessage = "";

XmlNode myNode = websService.GetListTemplates();

XmlNodeList nodes = myNode.SelectNodes("*[@BaseType=0]");

foreach (XmlNode node in nodes)
    strMessage = strMessage + node.Attributes["Name"].Value + "\n";
