Hello,

I developed a web service method whos response is in the code section below.  How can I send a xmlDocument back from the web service?  When I try to access the method locally it says the return type is an XmlNode instead of XmlDocument which the method returns.

Thanks!
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<soap:Envelope xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
  <soap:Body>
    <GetBoatByIDResponse xmlns="http://.com/">
      <GetBoatByIDResult>xml</GetBoatByIDResult>
    </GetBoatByIDResponse>
  </soap:Body>
</soap:Envelope>

Can you post the code for the function you are calling?

Basically, in the function, if you set the return type to be XmlDocument, that is the type of object it will return.  

ie:
[WebMethod]
public XmlDocument SomeMethod()
{
     XmlDocument xmlDoc = new XmlDocument();
     return xmlDoc;
}
