Message class

Microsoft Office Live Communications Server 2005 with SP1

Message (Microsoft.Rtc.Sip)

The Message class defines the abstract base class for SIP message classes. It contains a parsed SIP message, separated into its component headers and content.

The Request and Response classes inherit from this class. Objects of these types are generated by transactions (represented as a Transaction type or derived type, such as ClientTransaction and ServerTransaction) between two proxies.

Message headers are represented as Header objects. The collection of all headers on a message is found in the Message.AllHeaders property, which contains a HeaderCollection object. This HeaderCollection object contains all of the headers defined on the message. The content of a message is accessible through the Message.Content property.

This class implements the ICloneable interface.

The Message class is derived from the System.Object class.
