Global Event: OnWebServiceExecuteEnd

The OnWebServiceExecuteEnd Event occurs when data is returned from a Web Service Data Source. This Event could be used to decompress or decrypt data being returned from a Web Service Data Source.


For custom code the args array is structured as follows:

Args[] contains a single string of the data coming from the Web Service in position zero.

For .Net Assemblies the method signature is as follows:

string EventHandlerName(SessionInfo sessionInfo, string webServiceXml)

Expected Return

The OnWebServiceExecuteEnd Event expects a string to be returned.

NOTE. This Event only occurs when the callType Parameter has the value 1.


The following example shows how information from a web service could be decompressed.

byte[] compressedBuffer = Convert.FromBase64String((string)args[0]);
using (System.IO.MemoryStream stream = new System.IO.MemoryStream())
int uncompressedLength = BitConverter.ToInt32(compressedBuffer, 0);
	stream.Write(compressedBuffer, 4, compressedBuffer.Length - 4);
	byte[] uncompressedBuffer = new byte[uncompressedLength];
stream.Position = 0;
	using (System.IO.Compression.GZipStream compress = new System.IO.Compression.GZipStream(stream, System.IO.Compression.CompressionMode.Decompress))
		compress.Read(uncompressedBuffer, 0, uncompressedBuffer.Length);
		return System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetString(uncompressedBuffer);
