    • Hi Carlos, Great article !
      In the forums this question has come up time and time again (Actually twice). How do I include <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> in a response message to the client when BodyStyle:=WebMessageBodyStyle.Bare is set on the WebGetAttribute.
      I followed your article to the letter and when regenerating the message (which is awesome that you showed us how) the xml declaration disappears. I know it's possible cos when BodyStyle:=WebMessageBodyStyle.Wrapped the xml declaration is returned to the client.
      I thought it was the difference between XMLDictionaryReader and XMLReader which was the root cause but after many hours of trying different variations I'm still stumped.
      I hope you have time to answer my question
    • I figured it out !!!
          Public Sub BeforeSendReply(ByRef reply As System.ServiceModel.Channels.Message, correlationState As Object) Implements System.ServiceModel.Dispatcher.IDispatchMessageInspector.BeforeSendReply
              WebOperationContext.Current.OutgoingResponse.ContentType = "application/xml"
              reply = WebOperationContext.Current.CreateTextResponse("<?xml version=""1.0"" encoding=""utf-8"" ?><myField>Hello, I'm formatted xml</myField>")
          End Sub
