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 MakeMultipleReservations request object and a MakeMultipleReservations response object. We will also need one or more RentalContact objects and one or more MakeReservation request objects.

// Create needed objects
SWS.WSSoapClient service = new SWS.WSSoapClient();
SWS.MakeMultipleReservations_Request request = new SWS.MakeMultipleReservations_Request();
SWS.MakeMultipleReservations_Response response;

SWS.MakeReservation_Request resRequest = new SWS.MakeReservation_Request();
SWS.MakeReservation_Request resRequest2 = new SWS.MakeReservation_Request();
SWS.RentalContact conRequest = new SWS.RentalContact();

Here’s my sample code of the various objects. In this sample, two units are being reserved by the same person on the same account.

// Assign values
conRequest.ContactId = 123456;
conRequest.AddressId = 123456;
conRequest.PhoneId = 123456;
conRequest.PrimaryFlag = true;

resRequest.SiteID = 123456;
resRequest.AcctID = 123456;
resRequest.UnitID = 123456;
resRequest.Version = 5;
resRequest.QuoteType = SWS.Quote_Types.QuoteOnly;
resRequest.RentNow = false;
resRequest.Price = 50m;
resRequest.Contacts = new SWS.RentalContact[] { conRequest };

resRequest2.SiteID = 123456;
resRequest2.AcctID = 123456;
resRequest2.UnitID = 456789;
resRequest2.Version = 12;
resRequest2.QuoteType = SWS.Quote_Types.QuoteOnly;
resRequest2.RentNow = false;
resRequest2.Price = 60m;
resRequest2.Contacts = new SWS.RentalContact[] { conRequest };

request.OrgID = 123456;
request.Reservations = new SWS.MakeReservation_Request[] 
                      { resRequest, resRequest2 } ;

Finally we can call the method and pass across the login object and the request object to make our multiple reservations. It’s a good idea to do this in a Try Catch block.

// Call the method that will load the response object
  response = service.MakeMultipleReservations(user_request, request);
catch (Exception ex)

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.
