Describes a method of a service.


from message google.protobuf.MethodDescriptorProto




clientStreaming?: boolean

Identifies if client streams multiple client messages


from field: optional bool client_streaming = 5 [default = false];

inputType?: string

Input and output type names. These are resolved in the same way as FieldDescriptorProto.type_name, but must refer to a message type.


from field: optional string input_type = 2;

name?: string


from field: optional string name = 1;

options?: MethodOptions


from field: optional google.protobuf.MethodOptions options = 4;

outputType?: string


from field: optional string output_type = 3;

serverStreaming?: boolean

Identifies if server streams multiple server messages


from field: optional bool server_streaming = 6 [default = false];

fields: FieldList
runtime: ProtoRuntime
typeName: "google.protobuf.MethodDescriptorProto" = "google.protobuf.MethodDescriptorProto"


  • Parse from binary data, merging fields.

    Repeated fields are appended. Map entries are added, overwriting existing keys.

    If a message field is already present, it will be merged with the new data.


    Returns MethodDescriptorProto

  • Retrieve the MessageType of this message - a singleton that represents the protobuf message declaration and provides metadata for reflection- based operations.

    Returns MessageType<MethodDescriptorProto>

  • Serialize the message to binary data.


    Returns Uint8Array

  • Override for serialization behavior. This will be invoked when calling JSON.stringify on this message (i.e. JSON.stringify(msg)).

    Note that this will not serialize google.protobuf.Any with a packed message because the protobuf JSON format specifies that it needs to be unpacked, and this is only possible with a type registry to look up the message type. As a result, attempting to serialize a message with this type will throw an Error.

    This method is protected because you should not need to invoke it directly -- instead use JSON.stringify or toJsonString for stringified JSON. Alternatively, if actual JSON is desired, you should use toJson.

    Returns JsonValue

  • Serialize the message to a JSON value, a JavaScript value that can be passed to JSON.stringify().


    Returns JsonValue

  • Serialize the message to a JSON string.


    Returns string

  • Parameters

    Returns MethodDescriptorProto
