System.Web.Services.Protocols (

This enumeration indicates the stage that a SoapMessage is in. Messages are serialized into SOAP before they are transmitted over the Internet and deserialized when they are received. Both the web service and the proxy client send and receive messages, so both participate in the serialization and deserialization process.

public enum SoapMessageStage {
   BeforeSerialize = 1,
   AfterSerialize = 2,
   BeforeDeserialize = 4,
