SoapHeaders to Web Services in .Net

SoapHeaders can be used to send “extra” and optional parameters to web service methods and is a technique which can be extremely useful. See the following example:

Server-side (MyService.asmx):

public class MyService : System.Web.Services.WebService
   public class AddDateHeader : SoapHeader
      public bool AddDate;
   public AddDateHeader myheader;

   public string HelloWorld()
      if (myheader != null && myheader.AddDate == true)
         return "Hello World " + DateTime.Now.ToString();
         return "Hello World";


localhost.MyService si = new localhost.MyService();
si.AddDateHeaderValue = new localhost.AddDateHeader();
si.AddDateHeaderValue.AddDate = true;

Furthermore, these headers can be accessed in SoapExtension components. For example, there might be a SoapHeader that controls the transport of data.


Public Overrides Sub ProcessMessage(ByVal message As SoapMessage)
    Dim compress As Boolean = False
    Dim header As SoapHeader
    For Each header In message.Headers
        If header.GetType().Name = "Compress" Then
            compress = True
        End If

Sometimes it’s useful to have the header sent in both directions (both to and from the service). In this case, apply the attribute to the web method with the Direction attribute:

[SoapHeader("myheader", Direction = SoapHeaderDirection.InOut)]
public string HelloWorld()
