BindingElement.CanBuildChannelListener(BindingContext) BindingElement.CanBuildChannelListener(BindingContext) BindingElement.CanBuildChannelListener(BindingContext) BindingElement.CanBuildChannelListener(BindingContext) Method


Returns a value that indicates whether the binding element can build a listener for a specific type of channel.

generic <typename TChannel>
 where TChannel : class, System::ServiceModel::Channels::IChannel virtual bool CanBuildChannelListener(System::ServiceModel::Channels::BindingContext ^ context);
public virtual bool CanBuildChannelListener<TChannel> (System.ServiceModel.Channels.BindingContext context) where TChannel : class, System.ServiceModel.Channels.IChannel;
abstract member CanBuildChannelListener : System.ServiceModel.Channels.BindingContext -> bool (requires 'Channel : null and 'Channel :> System.ServiceModel.Channels.IChannel)
override this.CanBuildChannelListener : System.ServiceModel.Channels.BindingContext -> bool (requires 'Channel : null and 'Channel :> System.ServiceModel.Channels.IChannel)
Public Overridable Function CanBuildChannelListener(Of TChannel As {Class, IChannel}) (context As BindingContext) As Boolean

Type Parameters


The type of channel the listener accepts.


BindingContext BindingContext BindingContext BindingContext

The BindingContext that provides context for the binding element.


true if the IChannelListener<TChannel> of type IChannel can be built by the binding element; otherwise, false.



CustomBinding binding = new CustomBinding();
HttpTransportBindingElement element = new HttpTransportBindingElement();
BindingParameterCollection parameters = new BindingParameterCollection();
Uri baseAddress = new Uri("http://localhost:8000/ChannelApp");
String relAddress = "http://localhost:8000/ChannelApp/service";
BindingContext context = new BindingContext(binding, parameters, baseAddress, relAddress, ListenUriMode.Explicit);

bool bFlag = element.CanBuildChannelListener<IReplyChannel>(context);


Use this method if you want to check that the channel listener for channels of type TChannel can be build for the context provided before attempting to build the listener. Alternatively, build the channel listener by calling BuildChannelListener and catch the exception generated if it cannot be built.
