Tutorial :How to add xsl stylesheet node to XML produced by XmlSerializer?


I have an WCF REST service which returns objects serialized with XmlSerializer. How can I add XSL stylesheet information (like the one below) to the output returned by the WCF service?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>  <?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="transforms/Customer.xsl"?>  <Customer>      <Name>Foo</Name>  </Customer>  

My current operationcontract:

  [OperationContract, XmlSerializerFormat]  [WebGet( UriTemplate = "{id}" )]  Customer GetById( string id );  

What I would prefer to be able to do, in order to control the stylesheet reference:

  [OperationContract, XmlSerializerFormat]  [XslStylesheet( Href = "transforms/Customer.xsl" )]  [WebGet( UriTemplate = "{id}" )]  Customer GetById( string id );  


This article decribes how to introduce a [IncludeXmlDeclaration] attribute. You should be able to something similar for your XslStylesheet attribute.
