IContractBehavior.ApplyClientBehavior(ContractDescription, ServiceEndpoint, ClientRuntime) IContractBehavior.ApplyClientBehavior(ContractDescription, ServiceEndpoint, ClientRuntime) IContractBehavior.ApplyClientBehavior(ContractDescription, ServiceEndpoint, ClientRuntime) Method

Definition

Implements a modification or extension of the client across a contract.

public:
 void ApplyClientBehavior(System::ServiceModel::Description::ContractDescription ^ contractDescription, System::ServiceModel::Description::ServiceEndpoint ^ endpoint, System::ServiceModel::Dispatcher::ClientRuntime ^ clientRuntime);
public void ApplyClientBehavior (System.ServiceModel.Description.ContractDescription contractDescription, System.ServiceModel.Description.ServiceEndpoint endpoint, System.ServiceModel.Dispatcher.ClientRuntime clientRuntime);
abstract member ApplyClientBehavior : System.ServiceModel.Description.ContractDescription * System.ServiceModel.Description.ServiceEndpoint * System.ServiceModel.Dispatcher.ClientRuntime -> unit

Parameters

contractDescription
ContractDescription ContractDescription ContractDescription

The contract description for which the extension is intended.

clientRuntime
ClientRuntime ClientRuntime ClientRuntime

The client runtime.

Examples

The following code example assumes a custom IInstanceProvider implementation called ObjectProviderBehavior that provides a "singleton" behavior; it always returns the same service instance and does not recycle it.

To insert the instance provider customization, the example shows how to implement a custom attribute (SingletonBehaviorAttribute) that implements IContractBehavior to insert the custom service instance provider. It also implements IContractBehaviorAttribute, which binds its use to the ISampleService contract.

public class SingletonBehaviorAttribute : Attribute, IContractBehaviorAttribute, IContractBehavior
{

  #region IContractBehaviorAttribute Members

  public Type TargetContract
  {
    get { return typeof(ISampleService); }
  }

  #endregion

  #region IContractBehavior Members

  public void AddBindingParameters(ContractDescription description, ServiceEndpoint endpoint, System.ServiceModel.Channels.BindingParameterCollection parameters)
  {
    return;
  }

  public void ApplyClientBehavior(ContractDescription description, ServiceEndpoint endpoint, ClientRuntime clientRuntime)
  {
    return;
  }

  public void ApplyDispatchBehavior(ContractDescription description, ServiceEndpoint endpoint, DispatchRuntime dispatch)
  {
    dispatch.InstanceProvider = new ObjectProviderBehavior("Custom ObjectProviderBehavior constructor.");
  }

  public void Validate(ContractDescription description, ServiceEndpoint endpoint)
  {
    return;
  }

  #endregion
}
 Public Class SingletonBehaviorAttribute

#Region "IContractBehaviorAttribute Members"

Public ReadOnly Property TargetContract() As Type Implements IContractBehaviorAttribute.TargetContract

  End Get
End Property

#End Region

#Region "IContractBehavior Members"

Public Sub AddBindingParameters(ByVal description As ContractDescription, ByVal endpoint As ServiceEndpoint, ByVal parameters As System.ServiceModel.Channels.BindingParameterCollection) Implements IContractBehavior.AddBindingParameters
  Return
End Sub

Public Sub ApplyClientBehavior(ByVal description As ContractDescription, ByVal endpoint As ServiceEndpoint, ByVal clientRuntime As ClientRuntime) Implements IContractBehavior.ApplyClientBehavior
  Return
End Sub

Public Sub ApplyDispatchBehavior(ByVal description As ContractDescription, ByVal endpoint As ServiceEndpoint, ByVal dispatch As DispatchRuntime) Implements IContractBehavior.ApplyDispatchBehavior
  dispatch.InstanceProvider = New ObjectProviderBehavior("Custom ObjectProviderBehavior constructor.")
End Sub

Public Sub Validate(ByVal description As ContractDescription, ByVal endpoint As ServiceEndpoint) Implements IContractBehavior.Validate
  Return
End Sub

#End Region
 End Class

Remarks

Implement the ApplyClientBehavior method to view, modify, or add custom extensions to the client runtime across all messages or for one specific operation. For details about what customizations you can do with a client run-time object, see ClientRuntime and ClientOperation.

The ApplyClientBehavior method can throw a NotImplementedException exception if the behavior is only intended for use in a service application.

This method is called once for each endpoint that uses the specified service contract.

Note that there can be two operations with the same name in the description (one in each direction), so if you must iterate through operations where the contract is a duplex contract, you must correlate the message direction between the endpoint ClientRuntime and that returned by the CallbackDispatchRuntime property.

Because other behaviors may have already added or removed some operations from the runtime, there is no guarantee that there are the same number of operations in the description as there are ClientOperation objects in the Operations property.
