I have result of web service function in a XML text file. It cane from the guy who setup service
I can't connect to the service yet til I get permissions, so simple "add service" in visual studio does nothing

I'd like to have the XML as .vb classes etc., write code on it an so on, just like you can when using "add reference "

Can I do anything like this from XML file only? So simulate connect to service whilst waiting for it ?

A better description might be how to "decode" to make a class with properties to match the XML

Or how to put the XML soap text into a "presentable" format as objects/vb classes for processing

example SOAP returned is as follows: note I have stripped this down, it mightn't be valid now

ok...I see
var bytes = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(theMessageString);
var reader = XmlDictionaryReader.CreateTextReader(bytes, XmlDictionaryReaderQuotas.Max);

what next, what do I do with the reader?

ok try the below way.

create a wsdl file of your xml SOAP response, please refer the below link for further information.
Web Services Description Language Tool

keep the wsdl file in C:\inetpub\wwwroot  folder, so that it will be up and running.

add a Web reference to your project and locate the service by the name you provide to your file.

add directive of the service and ready to go.

hope this helps.
