Example

As with every method we need to pass in credentials. We do this with the LookupUser request object.

We’ll assume you’ve got a web reference, let’s name it SWS, in your Visual Studio project.  At this point we need to our objects.  We’ll need the standard service object, a UpdateStreetRate request object and a UpdateStreetRate response object. We will also need UpdateStreetReqData array to pass to the request object.

// Create a request and response objects
SWS.WSSoapClient service = new SWS.WSSoapClient();
SWS.UpdateStreetRate_Request request = new SWS.UpdateStreetRate_Request();
SWS.UpdateStreetRate_Response response;

SWS.UpdateStreetReqData[] reqRateData = new SWS.UpdateStreetReqData[1];

Here’s my sample code of the Request object.

// request objects
reqRateData[0].NewRate = 55.50m;
reqRateData[0].Height = 10m;
reqRateData[0].Width = 8m;
reqRateData[0].Attribute01 = 1234;
           
request.SiteID = 123456;
request.StreetRateData = reqRateData;

For each record passed in, a corresponding record will be returned in the response object.  The first record in corresponds to the first record out and so on.
We can call the method and pass across the login object and the request object to make our payment. It’s a good idea to do this in a Try Catch block.

// Call the method that will load the response object
try
{
  response = service.UpdateStreetRate(user_request, request);
}
catch (Exception ex)
{
  MessageBox.Show(ex.Message);
}

Note that if something goes wrong the service will respond with an exception. You’ll want to take a look at that message returned in that exception so it can be debugged.

    Updated Sept. 3, 2015: Previously, when calling the UpdateStreetRate method, rentals which were in “Available Hold” were being updated with the new street rate. We’ve corrected this issue to no longer update rentals which are in “Available Hold”.
