Type.IsContextfulImpl Method

Implements the IsContextful property and determines whether the Type can be hosted in a context.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

protected virtual bool IsContextfulImpl()

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the Type can be hosted in a context; otherwise, false.

This method can be overridden by a derived class.

A context intercepts calls to the class members and enforce policies that are applied to the class, such as synchronization.

The following example demonstrates a use of the IsContextfulImpl method.

using System;
using System.Reflection;
public class MyTypeDelegatorClass : TypeDelegator
{
    public string myElementType = null;
    private Type myType = null ; 

    public MyTypeDelegatorClass(Type myType) : base(myType)
    {
        this.myType = myType;
    }
    // Override IsContextfulImpl. 
    protected override bool IsContextfulImpl()
    {
        // Check whether the type is contextful. 
        if(myType.IsContextful)
        { 
            myElementType = " is contextful ";
            return true;
        }
        return false;
    }
}
public class MyTypeDemoClass
{
    public static void Main()
    {
        try
        {
            MyTypeDelegatorClass myType;
            Console.WriteLine ("Check whether MyContextBoundClass can be hosted in a context.");
            // Check whether MyContextBoundClass is contextful.
            myType = new MyTypeDelegatorClass(typeof(MyContextBoundClass));
            if( myType.IsContextful)
            {
                Console.WriteLine(typeof(MyContextBoundClass) + " can be hosted in a context.");
            }
            else
            {
                Console.WriteLine(typeof(MyContextBoundClass) + " cannot be hosted in a context.");
            }
            // Check whether the int type is contextful.
            myType = new MyTypeDelegatorClass(typeof(MyTypeDemoClass));
            Console.WriteLine ("\nCheck whether MyTypeDemoClass can be hosted in a context.");
            if( myType.IsContextful)
            {
                Console.WriteLine(typeof(MyTypeDemoClass) + " can be hosted in a context.");
            }
            else
            {
                Console.WriteLine(typeof(MyTypeDemoClass) + " cannot be hosted in a context.");
            }
        }
        catch( Exception e )
        {
            Console.WriteLine("Exception: {0}", e.Message);
        }
    }
}
// This class demonstrates IsContextfulImpl. 
public class MyContextBoundClass : ContextBoundObject
{
    public string myString = "This class is used to demonstrate members of the Type class.";
