Question regarding fields in the BatchStatisticType class

The BatchStatisticType class has a bunch of boolean flags that seem to be redundant. For example, these two


private bool returnedItemAmountFieldSpecified;

private bool returnedItemAmountSpecified1Field;


are used to indicate whether “returnedItemAmountField” field is present or not. I understand that the API was developed before nullable value types where allowed in .NET, so at that time, “returnedItemAmountField” could not be declared like this:


   private decimal? returnedItemAmountField;


That is fine, but my question is related to the two Boolean flags. One is called “***FieldSpecified” and the other one is called “***Specified1Field”. What’s the difference between the two?

I can't seem to find returnedItemAmountSpecified1Field is the C# dll solution.


I use my Sandbox account and therefore my Service Reference points to the test environment Authorize.Net exposes for developers. This is the URL configured in the service reference:


When the service is added to the solution, a whole bunch of classes are brought in. This is how the "BatchStatisticType" class looks like after the import (I bolded the properties that are duplicates):



    [System.CodeDom.Compiler.GeneratedCodeAttribute("System.Xml", "4.0.30319.18408")]





public partial classBatchStatisticType : object, System.ComponentModel.INotifyPropertyChanged {


private string accountTypeField;


private string currencyCodeField;


private decimal chargeAmountField;


private int chargeCountField;


private decimal refundAmountField;


private int refundCountField;


private int voidCountField;


private int declineCountField;


private int errorCountField;


private decimal returnedItemAmountField;


private bool returnedItemAmountFieldSpecified;


private bool returnedItemAmountSpecified1Field;


private int returnedItemCountField;


private bool returnedItemCountFieldSpecified;


private bool returnedItemCountSpecified1Field; 


// I had to chop the resdt of the class because the message would have been to big.


Am I missing something? Do i use the wrong URL to create my service reference?

Look like they use the returnedItemAmountSpecified or their definition,

and then .Net create it own copy for the minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1" name="xyz" type="s:decimal"
