int/out params with c#

I'm using an async pattern with c# and wcf. I've got a param I just want to pass straight thru. I've ended up by haveing the param as an in and an out, i.e. twice. Is that the most elegant way of doing it with WCF async?

The preferred method is to use a ref or out parameter:

Synchronous and Asynchronous Operations

IAsyncResult BeginDoWork(string data, 
                          ref string inout, 
                          AsyncCallback callback, 
                          object state);
int EndDoWork(ref string inout, out string outonly, IAsyncResult result);

Open in new window


But you can't use a ref with wcf. I think maybe the data contract approach might be (whilst a bit overkill) preferrable.
