    Hello,

     I'm trying to use Fiddler to examine some WCF service calls made from a client application. The sessions show the fact that a service call was made as I can see the URL, but I can't see how to tell which method on the service was called.

    If the app makes multiple calls to the same service, I need to know which calls were to which service methods. How do I do that?

    Thanks

    Here is a screenshot of the sessions. I didn't include this before as it doesn't show much.

    Can't see anything useful in the right hand panel at all

    Thanks

    Have you looked at the Inspectors tab, which shows detailed information on the session? In particular, the "Raw" tabs for request and response show the entire request and response in raw text form.

     I don't know about WCF calls, but if you're looking for info that's in the headers or body, it will be there.

    Hello,

    I had in mind a screenshot of the Fiddler window as a whole.

    Assuming your WCF service uses SOAP/HTTP you can see the method being called in the SOAP envelope. That you can find in the Inspectors tab TextView (or Raw).

    Hello,

     I discovered that Fiddler shows at least two (sometimes three) entries for each WCF call made, and only one of these includes the name of the method. As luck would have it, when clicking around before, I managed to miss the ones with the name in.

    So, you can see the method, yo just have to ignore the Fiddler entries where the headers don't show anything.

    Thanks for all the help
