ActivationArguments Class

Definition

Provides data for manifest-based activation of an application. This class cannot be inherited.

public ref class ActivationArguments sealed : System::Security::Policy::EvidenceBase
[System.Runtime.InteropServices.ComVisible(true)]
[System.Serializable]
public sealed class ActivationArguments : System.Security.Policy.EvidenceBase
type ActivationArguments = class
    inherit EvidenceBase

Examples

The following code example shows how to obtain the current ActivationArguments object from the AppDomainSetup for the AppDomain of a manifest-based application.

using System.Reflection;
using System.Security;
using System.Security.Permissions;
using System.Runtime.Hosting;

namespace ActivationContextSample
{
    public class Program : MarshalByRefObject
    {
        [SecurityPermission(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, ControlDomainPolicy=true)]
        public static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            // Get the AppDomainManager from the current domain.
            AppDomainManager domainMgr = AppDomain.CurrentDomain.DomainManager;
            // Get the ApplicationActivator from the AppDomainManager.
            ApplicationActivator appActivator = domainMgr.ApplicationActivator;
            Console.WriteLine("Assembly qualified name from the application activator.");
            Console.WriteLine(appActivator.GetType().AssemblyQualifiedName);
            // Get the ActivationArguments from the SetupInformation property of the domain.
            ActivationArguments activationArgs = AppDomain.CurrentDomain.SetupInformation.ActivationArguments;
            // Get the ActivationContext from the ActivationArguments.
            ActivationContext actContext = activationArgs.ActivationContext;
            Console.WriteLine("The ActivationContext.Form property value is: " +
                activationArgs.ActivationContext.Form);
            Console.Read();
        }

Remarks

The ActivationArguments class is used by the AppDomainSetup class.

The manifest-based activation model uses an application manifest rather than an assembly for activation. A manifest fully describes the application, its dependencies, security requirements, and so forth. The manifest model has several advantages over the assembly-based activation model, especially for Web applications. For example, the manifest contains the security requirements of the application, which enables the user to decide whether to allow the application to execute before downloading the code. The manifest also contains information about the application dependencies.

Constructors

ActivationArguments(ActivationContext)

Initializes a new instance of the ActivationArguments class with the specified activation context.

ActivationArguments(ActivationContext, String[])

Initializes a new instance of the ActivationArguments class with the specified activation context and activation data.

ActivationArguments(ApplicationIdentity)

Initializes a new instance of the ActivationArguments class with the specified application identity.

ActivationArguments(ApplicationIdentity, String[])

Initializes a new instance of the ActivationArguments class with the specified application identity and activation data.

Properties

ActivationContext

Gets the activation context for manifest-based activation of an application.

ActivationData

Gets activation data from the host.
