I need to execute a request using the .NET SDK, but the call wrapper does not have a method with the parameters that I need to send in. How should I make the call?


All the SDK call wrapper classes derive from the ApiCall class which has a no argument Execute method.  You can use this to execute your request and pass in inputs by setting the properties of the call.  This is also the recommended way of executing requests using the SDK.


Detailed Description

Lets take the example that you want to make a call to GetCharites and pass in only Query as the input.  The SDK wrapper class GetCharitiesCall does not have a GetCharities method that takes just the Query as a parameter.  In this case, you can set the Query as a property of the GetCharitiesCall object and run the Execute method.  You can get the results of the response by accesssing the appropriate call property.

Here is a C# sample to demonstrate using the Execute method of the GetCharitiesCall class:

namespace SDK3Examples

public class GetCharities
public void GetCharitiesUsingQuery(string query)
    GetCharitiesCall apicall = new GetCharitiesCall(GetContext());
    apicall.Query = query;
    // Get the Charity List
    CharityInfoTypeCollection charities = apicall.CharityList;

    public ApiContext GetContext()
       ApiContext context = new ApiContext();

  // Credentials for the call

  context.ApiCredential.eBayToken = 'token';

  // Set the URL
  context.SoapApiServerUrl = ''; 

  // Set logging
  context.ApiLogManager = newApiLogManager();
  context.ApiLogManager.ApiLoggerList.Add(new eBay.Service.Util.FileLogger('Messages.log', true, true, true));
  context.ApiLogManager.EnableLogging = true;

  // Set the version
  context.Version = '1131';

  return context;
