Hi Newbie here,

Ran through hands-on and it all works great.

I want to return a collection though, not just 1 entity (as per xsd eg in hands-on).

To do this i created a Data Contract entity & collection (list<t>), then changed the demand response from xsd message to message & added new data contract message part which is my DC collection type.

When i validate though i get the following error...

"Error 3 You must use the DataContractSerializer on the Service Contract model since there are message contracts on the Service contract model referencing a Data Contract Model which uses the WCF extender ..."

I just can't seem to figure this out??

Cheers,
Ken

ok figured it out... needed to change serializer type to DataContractSerializer in the properties of service contract (just like error message says!)

It just took me a while to find actual property.
