Command Class

Command class that all Business Logic commands derive from. Each command implementation should implement an [Execute] method that performs the actual work for this command.

The Command type exposes the following members.


Name Description
Protected method Command All Commands have an [ICommandContext] that enables them to communicate with the calling application.



Name Description
Public propertyStatic member CommandCacheLimit Get/Set Global Command cache size limit.
Public property IsCacheFull [IsCacheFull] returns [True] if the command cache is over the limit.
Protected property IsCanceled [IsStopped] returns true if the command has been stopped for any reason.
Public property MaxCacheSize Get/Set command instance cache size limit.
Public property Name Return the type name of this command.
Protected property RequestContext Context this command is executing.
Public property TotalResultSize The [TotalResultSize] is the sum of all data sent that was ever added to the command cache. This gives an approximate representation the size of the response for the command.



Name Description
Public method ContinueExecution Derived classes can override [ContinueExecution] when the initial call to [Execute] returns partial results. This will allow the command to continue with the operation and retrieve more data for the response. If the command always returns completed results from the [Execute] method it does not have to implement this method.
Public method DecrementCacheUsage [DecrementCacheUsage] is used to notify the command that data is being dropped from the cache, usually by returning it to the application.
Public method Dispose() [IDisposable] implementation. When an [ICommandContext] ends, it will dispose each command that has been registered with it.
Protected method Dispose(Boolean)
Public method Equals Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected method Finalize (Overrides Object.Finalize().)
Public method GetHashCode Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method GetType Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method IncrementCacheUsage [IncrementCacheUsage] is used to notify the command that data is being cached that can be sent to the client. Once the command caches enough data, this method returns [True] to the caller telling them that it has exceeded the maximum requested cache size. If the caller can stop execution and return its current data, it should do so at this point.
Protected method MemberwiseClone Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method ToString Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)


Thread Safety

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
