For the life of me I can not find a way to remove the automatically generated portion of my Get method.
given following code
[WebGet(UriTemplate = "{id}", BodyStyle=WebMessageBodyStyle.Bare, ResponseFormat=WebMessageFormat.Xml)]
public string Get(string id) {
return "blah";
}
 
I get following response.
<string xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/2003/10/Serialization/">blah</string>
 
How can I get just "blah".
Many Thanks.

I think this will work, note the Stream as return argument.
      
[WebGet(UriTemplate = "{id}", BodyStyle = WebMessageBodyStyle.Bare)]
public Stream Get(string id)
{
  OutgoingWebResponseContext context = WebOperationContext.Current.OutgoingResponse;
  context.ContentType = "text/plain";
  return new System.IO.MemoryStream(ASCIIEncoding.Default.GetBytes("blah"));
}

Instead of changing the method signature, I would do this:
 
HttpWebResponse restResponse = (HttpWebResponse)restRequest.GetResponse();
string value = null;
 
using (var st = restResponse.GetResponseStream())
{
    StreamReader sr = new StreamReader(st);
    value = sr.ReadToEnd();
}
 
XmlDocument doc = new XmlDocument();
doc.LoadXml(value);
value = doc.InnerText;
