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 fee object, an AssessFee request object and an AssessFee response object.  We can define and create those like this:

// Create a request and response objects and grab a fee from GetBaseFees
SWS.WSSoapClient service = new SWS.WSSoapClient();
SWS.AssessFee_Request request = new SWS.AssessFee_Request();
SWS.AssessFee_Response response;

SWS.GetBaseFees_Response base_fee = service.GetBaseFees(user_request, fee_request);

Here’s my sample code of the Request object.

// Create the Assess fee request
request.SiteID = 123456;
request.RentalID = 123456;
request.BaseFeeObj = base_fee.Details[0];

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

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

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