How can I set the DetailLevel or GranularityLevel for a call using the .NET SDK?


To set the DetailLevel for a call, you need to add the required DetailLevelCodeType to the call's DetailLevelList collection.  For GranularityLevel, you need to set the required GranularityLevelCodeType to the call's GranularityLevel property.


Detailed Description

Here are a couple of samples written in C# which demonstrate how to set the DetailLevel and GranularityLevel:
using System;
using eBay.Service.Call;
using eBay.Service.Core.Sdk;
using eBay.Service.Util;
using eBay.Service.Core.Soap;

namespace SDKExamples

public class Samples
     public ApiContext context;
public string GetItem(string ItemID)
  GetItemCall apicall = new GetItemCall(GetContext());
  //Set the DetailLevel to get the Attribute Information
  apicall.ItemID = "110021195125";
  //Get the information from the response
  string  title = apicall.Item.Title;

public void GetSellerList()
    GetSellerListCall apicall = new GetSellerListCall(GetContext());
  TimeFilter tf = new TimeFilter();
  tf.TimeFrom =  DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(1);
  tf.TimeTo = DateTime.Now.AddDays(30);          
  apicall.EndTimeFilter = tf;
  //Set the GranularityLevel to Coarse
  apicall.GranularityLevel = GranularityLevelCodeType.Coarse;
  apicall.Pagination = new PaginationType();
  apicall.Pagination.EntriesPerPage = 200;
  apicall.Pagination.PageNumber = 1;

  //Process each item
  foreach( ItemType item in apicall.ItemList)
      //do the processing
  //Get more pages if required, by incrementing apicall.Pagination.PageNumber

    public ApiContext GetContext()

    if (context == null)
           context = new ApiContext();

      // Set the Sandbox API Credentials for the call
      context.ApiCredential.eBayToken = "token";

      // Set the Sandbox URL
      context.SoapApiServerUrl = ""; 

      // Set logging
      context.ApiLogManager = newApiLogManager();
      context.ApiLogManager.ApiLoggerList.Add(new eBay.Service.Util.FileLogger("Messages.log", true, true, true));
      context.ApiLogManager.EnableLogging = true;

      // Set the version
      context.Version = "1131";

   return context;
