rich type - ASP.NET Web Services

Hi all, I would like to know what kind of rich type (i mean complex type) a webservice can return. I have seen some example showing that a webservice can return a DataSet (does it just call DataSet.GetXml()?). How can I know is one type or an other type will be supported by webservice?

    Default rich type

    Hi all,

    I would like to know what kind of rich type (i mean complex type) a
    webservice can return.
    I have seen some example showing that a webservice can return a DataSet
    (does it just call DataSet.GetXml()?).
    How can I know is one type or an other type will be supported by webservice?
    Can a webservice also return a DataTable or a DataView? In fact I would like
    that my webservice return a dataview but i am not sure of how to do so. It
    seems difficult to know what type are supported by webservice and also what
    is the serialization mechanism used by webservice

    Tx in advance

    Essentially.
    > How can I know is one type or an other type will be supported by
    You can add support for any type.

    No, not in 1.1. In 2.0 IIRC a DataTable can be returned.

    A dataview doesnt really contain any data. Why not just fill into another
    Dataset and return then?

    This is all listed in MSDN quite plainly.
