.NET web service parameters with VB6

Hi Experts,

I have a .NET web service running and I'm trying to access it via VB6.

I can call the web service methods which don't have a parameter in them fine and it works.

It's when I call a method which has a parameter input of XML, how do i pick this up in the web service?
Am I doing something fundamentally wrong with having an parameter, should it just be able to pick up the XML sent by the application?

using the following code I managed to complete

            Using reader As StreamReader = New StreamReader(HttpContext.Current.Request.InputStream)
                ' Read one line from file
                _strLine = reader.ReadToEnd
            End Using

Open in new window

is the parameter type of string?

Basically the VB6 application is sending raw XML, but isn't sending it via the parameter.

So I am now wondering if I need to be able to pick up the soap message and decode the information passed, and if so, how to do this.
