Hi thuhue,

You can throw a SoapException in your webservice and add some information in it and catch the exception in your client . Here is my codes below, hope it is helpful to you.


1    [WebMethod]
2            public string HelloWorld()
3            {
4                string myNS = "Microsoft.Samples.XmlMessaging.WebServices.SoapExceptionSample";
5                XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
6                XmlNode detail = doc.CreateNode(XmlNodeType.Element, SoapException.DetailElementName.Name, SoapException.DetailElementName.Namespace);
7                XmlNode errorType = doc.CreateNode(XmlNodeType.Element,"ErrorType",myNS);
8                errorType.InnerText = "Validation";
10               XmlNode lineNum = doc.CreateNode(XmlNodeType.Element,"Line",myNS);
11               lineNum.InnerText = "24";
13               detail.AppendChild(errorType);
14               detail.AppendChild(lineNum);
16               string errorMsg = "this is errorMsg";
18               SoapException exc = new SoapException(errorMsg, SoapException.ClientFaultCode, "", detail);
19               throw exc;
21               return "Hello World";
22           }
24   private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
25           {
26               localhost.Service1 ser = new WindowsApplication1.localhost.Service1();
28               try
29               {
30                   string res = ser.HelloWorld();
31               }
32               catch(SoapException soapExc)
33               {
34                   string message = soapExc.Message;
36                   string show = soapExc.Detail.OuterXml;
37               }
38           }
