WsReceiveMessage function (webservices.h)

Receive a message and deserialize the body of the message as a value.

Syntax

HRESULT WsReceiveMessage(
  [in]           WS_CHANNEL                   *channel,
  [in]           WS_MESSAGE                   *message,
                 const WS_MESSAGE_DESCRIPTION **messageDescriptions,
  [in]           ULONG                        messageDescriptionCount,
  [in]           WS_RECEIVE_OPTION            receiveOption,
  [in]           WS_READ_OPTION               readBodyOption,
  [in, optional] WS_HEAP                      *heap,
                 void                         *value,
  [in]           ULONG                        valueSize,
                 ULONG                        *index,
  [in, optional] const WS_ASYNC_CONTEXT       *asyncContext,
  [in, optional] WS_ERROR                     *error
);

Parameters

[in] channel

The channel to receive from.

[in] message

The message object used to receive.

The message should be in WS_MESSAGE_STATE_EMPTY state.

messageDescriptions

An array of pointers to message descriptions that specifies the metadata for the expected types of messages.

[in] messageDescriptionCount

The number of items in the messageDescriptions array.

[in] receiveOption

Whether the message is required. See WS_RECEIVE_OPTION for more information.

[in] readBodyOption

Whether the body element is required, and how to allocate the value.
See WS_READ_OPTION for more information.

[in, optional] heap

The heap to store the deserialized values in. If the heap is not required for the given type, then this parameter can be NULL.

value

The interpretation of this parameter depends on the WS_READ_OPTION.

If WS_RECEIVE_OPTIONAL_MESSAGE is specified for the receiveOption parameter, and no more messages are available on the channel, this parameter is not touched. In this case, the function returns WS_S_END. (See Windows Web Services Return Values.)

If the bodyElementDescription of the WS_MESSAGE_DESCRIPTION that matched is NULL, then this parameter is not touched. In this case, the parameter does not need to be specified.

[in] valueSize

The interpretation of this parameter depends on the WS_READ_OPTION.

index

If WS_RECEIVE_OPTIONAL_MESSAGE is specified for the receiveOption parameter, and no more messages are available on the channel, this parameter is untouched. In this case, the function will return WS_S_END.

Otherwise, if the function succeeds this will contain the zero-based index into the array of message descriptions indicating which one matched.

This parameter may be NULL if the caller is not interested in the value (for example, if there is only one message description).

[in, optional] asyncContext

Information on how to invoke the function asynchronously, or NULL if invoking synchronously.

[in, optional] error

Specifies where additional error information should be stored if the function fails.

Return value

This function can return one of these values.

Return code Description

Remarks

This function uses metadata about the expected message types in order to deserialize the body.
The metadata is an array of of pointers to WS_MESSAGE_DESCRIPTIONs. Each message description contains an action value, which is used to match against the action of the message, and an WS_ELEMENT_DESCRIPTION which provides the metadata for the body element.

When the message headers have been received, the function will scan the array in order to find a match against the action. The first message description that matches is used to deserialize the body, and the zero-based index of this message description in the array is returned in the index out parameter. If the function succeeds, the index out parameter will always be set to indicate which message description was used.

In order for a message description to match, the action value must match that of the message exactly. If the action in the WS_MESSAGE_DESCRIPTION is NULL, then the action always matches. This can be used in the case where there is no action header in the received message, or if the body is always the same no matter what the action is.

If the body is expected to be empty, the bodyElementDescription field of the WS_MESSAGE_DESCRIPTION may be NULL.

If the bodyElementDescription is non-NULL, then this function deserializes the body as described in WsReadBody.

After a message has been received, its headers can be inspected using WsGetHeader or WsGetCustomHeader.
