Assignment Rule not working


I am having problems with the autoassignment rules working when I submit a lead using the api 4.0 into salesforce. The lead owner is always set to the user that I use to log into salesforce. How can I get my app to use the autoassign rules I have set up in salesforce? I am using the 4.0 api, and c# to develop my app.

You have to include an AssignmentRulesHeader in the request that controls which rules are run, see AssignmentRulesHeader in the docs.
The doc only shows a java example. Any idea where I can find a c# sample?
Works the same as the SessionHeader, something like

svc.AssignmentRuleHeader = new sforce.AssignmentRuleHeader();
svc.AssignmentRuleHeader.useDefaultRule = true;
svc.AssignmentRuleHeader.useDefaultRuleSpecified = true;
I got it to work. thanks Simon for all of your help once again.
