Methods

  Name Description
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows Phone ApplyTo Assigns the URI and properties of the endpoint address to the values of the headers of a specified message.
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows Phone Equals Returns a value that indicates whether a specified object is equivalent to the current endpoint address. (Overrides Object.Equals(Object).)
Protected methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows Phone Finalize Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows Phone GetHashCode Provides a unique hash code for the current endpoint address. (Overrides Object.GetHashCode().)
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows Phone GetType Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows Phone MemberwiseClone Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodStatic memberSupported by Silverlight for Windows Phone ReadFrom Reads an endpoint address for a specified address version from a specified XML dictionary reader.
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows Phone ToString Returns a canonical string representation of the URI that is contained in the endpoint address. (Overrides Object.ToString().)
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows Phone WriteContentsTo Saves all the child nodes of the node to the XML dictionary writer specified.

Operators

  Name Description
Public operatorStatic memberSupported by Silverlight for Windows Phone Equality Returns a value that indicates whether specified endpoint addresses are not equivalent.
Public operatorStatic memberSupported by Silverlight for Windows Phone Inequality Returns a value that indicates whether specified endpoint addresses are not equivalent.

Remarks

An endpoint address uniquely identifies the endpoint for a service.

The endpoint address belongs to the service endpoint, which also contains the binding, contract and behaviors for the endpoint.

The EndpointAddress contains a URI and address properties that include an identity, WSDL elements, and a collection of optional headers. The optional headers are used to provide additional, more detailed addressing information to identify or interact with the endpoint. For example, they can be used to indicate which instance of a service is to be used to process an incoming message from a particular user when multiple instances are available.
