Service xml serialization - xsd schema output
Posted By Allan on 18 Dec 2012

I've created a WCF web service and generated the xml serialization class with xsd.exe. My problem is that when I request the xsd from the service (http://localhost:59120/Service1.svc?xsd=xsd2) the element names are appended with "Field" does anyone know how to override these default names with the original element names?

 <xs:element name="addressField" type="xs:string" nillable="true"/>
 <xs:element name="emailIdField" type="xs:string" nillable="true"/>
 <xs:element name="idField" type="xs:string" nillable="true"/>
 <xs:element name="itemsField" type="tns:ArrayOfArrayOfOrdersCustomerItemsItem" nillable="true"/>
 <xs:element name="nameField" type="xs:string" nillable="true"/>

Regards Al

I've managed to fix this by regenerating my class (xsd.exe) using the f switch "/f[ields]" which generates fields instead of properties. By default, properties are generated.
