ObjectHandle ObjectHandle ObjectHandle ObjectHandle Class

Definition

Wraps marshal-by-value object references, allowing them to be returned through an indirection.

Examples

The following code example shows how to create an object in another AppDomain, and retrieve a proxy to the object from a ObjectHandle. In this example, you can assume that the code of the MyType class is compiled into an assembly called "ObjectHandleAssembly".

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Runtime::Remoting;
public ref class MyType: public MarshalByRefObject
{
public:
   MyType()
   {
      Console::Write( "Created an instance of MyType in an AppDomain with the " );
      Console::WriteLine( "hash code {0}", AppDomain::CurrentDomain->GetHashCode() );
      Console::WriteLine( "" );
   }

   int GetAppDomainHashCode()
   {
      return AppDomain::CurrentDomain->GetHashCode();
   }

};

int main()
{
   Console::WriteLine( "The hash code of the default AppDomain is {0}.", AppDomain::CurrentDomain->GetHashCode() );
   Console::WriteLine( "" );
   
   // Creates another AppDomain.
   AppDomain^ domain = AppDomain::CreateDomain( "AnotherDomain", nullptr, (AppDomainSetup^)nullptr );
   
   // Creates an instance of MyType defined in the assembly called ObjectHandleAssembly.
   ObjectHandle^ obj = domain->CreateInstance( "ObjectHandleAssembly", "MyType" );
   
   // Unwraps the proxy to the MyType object created in the other AppDomain.
   MyType^ testObj = dynamic_cast<MyType^>(obj->Unwrap());
   if ( RemotingServices::IsTransparentProxy( testObj ) )
      Console::WriteLine( "The unwrapped object is a proxy." );
   else
      Console::WriteLine( "The unwrapped object is not a proxy!" );

   Console::WriteLine( "" );
   Console::Write( "Calling a method on the object located in an AppDomain with the hash code " );
   Console::WriteLine( testObj->GetAppDomainHashCode() );
   
}

using System;
using System.Runtime.Remoting;


public class MyType : MarshalByRefObject {

   public MyType()  {
      Console.Write("Created an instance of MyType in an AppDomain with the ");
      Console.WriteLine("hash code {0}",AppDomain.CurrentDomain.GetHashCode());
      Console.WriteLine("");
   }

   public int GetAppDomainHashCode() {
      return AppDomain.CurrentDomain.GetHashCode();
   }
}


class Test {

   public static void Main() {

      Console.WriteLine("The hash code of the default AppDomain is {0}.", 
                        AppDomain.CurrentDomain.GetHashCode());
      Console.WriteLine("");

      // Creates another AppDomain.
      AppDomain domain = AppDomain.CreateDomain("AnotherDomain", 
                                                null, 
                                                (AppDomainSetup)null);

      // Creates an instance of MyType defined in the assembly called ObjectHandleAssembly.
      ObjectHandle obj = domain.CreateInstance("ObjectHandleAssembly", "MyType");

      // Unwrapps the proxy to the MyType object created in the other AppDomain.
      MyType testObj = (MyType)obj.Unwrap();

      if(RemotingServices.IsTransparentProxy(testObj))
         Console.WriteLine("The unwrapped object is a proxy.");
      else
         Console.WriteLine("The unwrapped object is not a proxy!");    

      Console.WriteLine("");
      Console.Write("Calling a method on the object located in an AppDomain with the hash code ");
      Console.WriteLine(testObj.GetAppDomainHashCode());

Remarks

The ObjectHandle class is used to pass an object (in a wrapped state) between multiple application domains without loading the metadata for the wrapped object in each AppDomain through which the ObjectHandle travels. Thus, the ObjectHandle class gives the caller control of when the Type of the remote object is loaded into a domain.

Constructors

ObjectHandle(Object) ObjectHandle(Object) ObjectHandle(Object) ObjectHandle(Object)

Initializes an instance of the ObjectHandle class, wrapping the given object o.

Methods

CreateObjRef(Type) CreateObjRef(Type) CreateObjRef(Type) CreateObjRef(Type)
