How do I consume a Web Service from a C# Library Project ?

Hello,

I have no problem consuming a web service from an ASP.NET Web Application project. I add a Web Reference and after that  I can easily consume the web service and its methods.

Now if I want to create a C# Class Library Project to test my Web Service, how do I create a Web Reference to the service in order to consume it?

Thank you.

I was able to add the Web Reference following these steps:

- Right Click "References" in the Solution Explorer
- Click "Add Service Reference"
- Click Advanced...
- Click "Add Web Reference..." (Notice the warning saying: "Add a Web Reference instead of a Service Reference. This will generate code based on .NET Framework 2.0 Web Services technology.")

I am guessing that there is a new way of creating and accessing Web Services on the .NET Framework 3.5.

You do it the same way.  I had a hell of a time with it though when I tried to do it the first time.  I can't remember what I did though to fix it.  I'll look for my old question and see if I told what I did...

ServiceEmailer.Emailer objEmailer = new ServiceEmailer.Emailer();     from class library... I  had added the web reference to the class library.

Here was what I did to fix my problems...

Apparently it was something dumb and easy... i deleted the app.config, settings, and those kinda files.  Added the webservice and it worked.

Hello,

Thank you for your prompt reply.

I am unable to find a way to add a Web Reference from my project. How did you do this?

The only option I have is to add a Service Reference.

Add System.Web.WebServices to your project as a reference, maybe System.EnterpriseServices also... I got that as a reference, but I don't remember why... It could be anything.  

Then you might want to make sure that show all files icon is selected in the solution explorer

don't know... I use 2008, but I have to use 2.0 framework still for older computers.  
i just add system.web.servservices to my project, and then i add a web reference.  

Or I might have just added the web reference, and then it brought in all those other references.... Hard to remember, I do web services so little.
