Description A message with details about why the void failed.
Success Boolean

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 VoidRetailAssessment request object and a VoidRetailAssessment response object.  We can define and create those like this:

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

Here’s my sample code of the Request object.

// VoidRetailAssessments Request
request.SiteID = 123546;
request.AssessIDs = new long[] { 123456 };

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

// Call the method that will load the response object
  response = service.VoidRetailAssessments(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.
