ServiceEndpoint.Behaviors ServiceEndpoint.Behaviors ServiceEndpoint.Behaviors ServiceEndpoint.Behaviors Property

Definition

Gets the behaviors for the service endpoint.

public:
 property System::Collections::Generic::KeyedByTypeCollection<System::ServiceModel::Description::IEndpointBehavior ^> ^ Behaviors { System::Collections::Generic::KeyedByTypeCollection<System::ServiceModel::Description::IEndpointBehavior ^> ^ get(); };
public System.Collections.Generic.KeyedByTypeCollection<System.ServiceModel.Description.IEndpointBehavior> Behaviors { get; }
member this.Behaviors : System.Collections.Generic.KeyedByTypeCollection<System.ServiceModel.Description.IEndpointBehavior>
Public ReadOnly Property Behaviors As KeyedByTypeCollection(Of IEndpointBehavior)

Property Value

The KeyedByTypeCollection<TItem> of type IEndpointBehavior that contains the behaviors specified for the service endpoint.

Examples

The following code demonstrates how to add a custom endpoint behavior and then access that behavior.

Uri baseAddress = new Uri("http://localhost:8001/Simple");
ServiceHost serviceHost = new ServiceHost(typeof(CalculatorService), baseAddress);

ServiceEndpoint endpoint = serviceHost.AddServiceEndpoint(
    typeof(ICalculator),
    new WSHttpBinding(),
    "CalculatorServiceObject");

endpoint.Behaviors.Add(new MyEndpointBehavior());

Console.WriteLine("List all behaviors:");
foreach (IEndpointBehavior behavior in endpoint.Behaviors)
{
    Console.WriteLine("Behavior: {0}", behavior.ToString());
}
Dim baseAddress As New Uri("http://localhost:8001/Simple")
Dim serviceHost As New ServiceHost(GetType(CalculatorService), baseAddress)

Dim endpoint As ServiceEndpoint = serviceHost.AddServiceEndpoint(GetType(ICalculator), New WSHttpBinding(), "CalculatorServiceObject")

endpoint.Behaviors.Add(New MyEndpointBehavior())

Console.WriteLine("List all behaviors:")
For Each behavior As IEndpointBehavior In endpoint.Behaviors
    Console.WriteLine("Behavior: {0}", CType(behavior, Object).ToString())
Next behavior

Remarks

The type of behavior that is accessible from the description hierarchy is scoped to the specific level. From the ServiceEndpoint the IEndpointBehavior is accessible.

If you want access to the IContractBehavior associated with an endpoint, you can obtain the contact for the endpoint using the Contract property. Then call the Behaviors property to obtain the KeyedByTypeCollection<TItem> of the IContractBehavior objects associated with the endpoint.
