I am still developing my Sony API, and am wanting to add more features.
Sort of like your ManagedUPnPTest example, I would like to be able to Dynamically create Methods based on the actions found with each service.
My Bravia has a service called AVTransport:1
It has an action called SetNextAVTransportURI, that requires 3 params.
I already have a class object called SonyDevice. It currently holds all the devices information.
This class has a partial class that holds all the Services called Servs. (SonyDevice.Servs)
Currently, I am accessing the services using a ForNext to loop through the services then executing the corresponding Invoke statement.
Is there a way during the creation of my SonyDevice that I could Dynamically create the AVTransport method and be able to access it through my object class?
This would cut down on my coding for all the serivces and actions.
SonyDevice.Servs.AVTransport.SetNextAVTransportURI(Int Instance ID, string NextURI, string NextURIMetaData)
I also would like to know how to create a listener for state variable changes!
Thanks in advance for your help!

OK, Disregard my above question, I am moving away from that, as I used your CodeGen and created the code for the Service object (AVTransport:1), and placed it directly in to my project.
Now, I am trying to save my Device object to a file.
However, I can not find a way to serialize anything from the ManagedUPnP.
For example, my SonyDevice object now has a Service object called AVTransport.
But this object is derived from a ManagedUPnP.Service object. (Does not have a parameterless constructor)
In your best practice, How could I save all the information for my device to a file, so I could then load the device in to my application and not have to do all the discovery stuff or send out a broadcast then load each service.
EDIT: Let me re-phase my question. Lets say I save the devices Description.xml to a file. Is there a way to create the device and services from this file instead of discovery?
