Defining String parameter max length?

Is there a way of defining the maximum length of a string parameter to
a web service in .Net?

I assumed that there would be an Xml... attribute that I could apply
to a string definition in the class that would control the generation
of the necessary maxlength attribute in the WSDL but I can't seem to
find one.

Thanks for any help you can offer,
John.

I don't believe there is one. Neither are there attributes to control other
schema facets.

John - thank you very much for your reply.

It seems to be a surprising ommission to me - given how big Microsoft
are on the position of .Net & Web Services.

Do you know if there's any way of hooking into the automated process
that generates the WSDL to add this kind of functionlity myself?

Thanks,
John.

Thank you very much for your response John.

This seems like quite a big omission on Microsoft's part, given how
strongly they position .Net in terms of Web Services.

Do you know if it's possible to hook into the code that auto-generates
the WSDL and write custom code to achieve this?

Many thanks,
John.
