This hotfix adds the SuppressPreamble property into the HttpResponseMessageProperty class in the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 (SP1). The SuppressPreamble property is a Boolean property. When the property is set to true in the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) service, certain properties of a HTTP response message can be set automatically. These properties include the Headers property, the ContentType property, and the StatusCode property. When you set these properties, the HttpTransport channel does not have to set these properties again. Therefore, when a WCF client accesses the WCF service, the service can send a status notification to the client by using the current HTTP response message.
Note The SuppressPreamble property works only when WCF services are running in ASP.NET compatibility mode.
