WCF Service Reference not picking up custom partial class

Hi All,

I'm using Linq to SQL to generate the data model for my database.  I need a temporary string property that is generated based on a number of conditions and doesn't need to be stored in the database.  

So on the web portion of my code I've created the following:

Partial Public Class MyClass

    Dim _extendedProperty As String

    Public Property extendedProperty As String

        Get
            Return _extendedProperty
        End Get

        Set(ByVal value As String)
            _extendedProperty = value
        End Set

    End Property

End Class


On the server side of the web service I can see this field no problem.  I get the table from the domain context:

   Dim c As New ClassDataContext(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("Conn").ToString())

        Dim l As New List(Of MyClass)

Dim pt As MyClass
        For Each p In c.Table
            pt = New MyClass
           'copy members from database.
           pt.ID = p.ID
           pt.Name = p.Name
          'etc

            'extended property from ExtendedDBML.vb
            pt.extendedproperty = ""
            l.Add(pt)
        Next

       return l

However on my client side when I invoke this I'm getting an error that pt.extendedproperty doesn't exist.  I have found that the reference file doesn't contain any information about the property, and the REALLY frustrating part was that I had this working.  

I have tried deleting and re-adding the service, full recompiles, etc.  Nothing seems to be working and need some more ideas.  

Any help greatly appreciated.

Your extension class must be added to the same name space as the class you are extending.
On cmd prompt do an iisreset to clear up any cache, before adding your web service to your client code
