LicenseContext LicenseContext LicenseContext Class


Specifies when you can use a licensed object and provides a way of obtaining additional services needed to support licenses running within its domain.

public ref class LicenseContext : IServiceProvider
public class LicenseContext : IServiceProvider
Public Class LicenseContext
Implements IServiceProvider


This class provides the default LicenseContext. It implements only run-time support and does not support saved license keys.

Notes to Inheritors

If you want to implement design-time license support, you must inherit from this class, and override the following members: UsageMode, GetSavedLicenseKey(Type, Assembly), GetService(Type), and SetSavedLicenseKey(Type, String). If you want to implement saved license keys, override the GetSavedLicenseKey(Type, Assembly) and SetSavedLicenseKey(Type, String) methods.

For more information about licensing, see How to: License Components and Controls.
