AppDomain.DoCallBack Method

Executes the code in another application domain that is identified by the specified delegate.

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

public void DoCallBack(
	CrossAppDomainDelegate callBackDelegate
)

Parameters

callBackDelegate
Type: System.CrossAppDomainDelegate

A delegate that specifies a method to call.

Implements

_AppDomain.DoCallBack(CrossAppDomainDelegate)

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

callBackDelegate is null.

callBackDelegate can specify a marshal-by-value, MarshalByRefObject, or ContextBoundObject.

The following example demonstrates using a static DoCallBack method.

static string greetings = "PONG!";

public static void Main()
{
    AppDomain otherDomain = AppDomain.CreateDomain("otherDomain");

    greetings = "PING!";
    MyCallBack();
    otherDomain.DoCallBack(new CrossAppDomainDelegate(MyCallBack));

    // Output: 
    //   PING! from defaultDomain 
    //   PONG! from otherDomain
}

static public void MyCallBack()
{
    string name = AppDomain.CurrentDomain.FriendlyName;

    if (name == AppDomain.CurrentDomain.SetupInformation.ApplicationName)
    {
        name = "defaultDomain";
    }
    Console.WriteLine(greetings + " from " + name);
}

The following example demonstrates using the DoCallBack method by value.

[Serializable]
public class PingPong
{
    private string greetings = "PING!";

    public static void Main()
    {
        AppDomain otherDomain = AppDomain.CreateDomain("otherDomain");

        PingPong pp = new PingPong();
        pp.MyCallBack();
        pp.greetings = "PONG!";
        otherDomain.DoCallBack(new CrossAppDomainDelegate(pp.MyCallBack));

        // Output: 
        //   PING! from defaultDomain 
        //   PONG! from otherDomain
    }

    public void MyCallBack()
    {
        string name = AppDomain.CurrentDomain.FriendlyName;

        if (name == AppDomain.CurrentDomain.SetupInformation.ApplicationName)
        {
            name = "defaultDomain";
        }
        Console.WriteLine(greetings + " from " + name);
    }
}

The following example demonstrates using the DoCallBack method by reference.

public class PingPong : MarshalByRefObject
{
    private string greetings = "PING!";

    public static void Main()
    {
        AppDomain otherDomain = AppDomain.CreateDomain("otherDomain");

        PingPong pp = new PingPong();
        pp.MyCallBack();
        pp.greetings = "PONG!";
        otherDomain.DoCallBack(new CrossAppDomainDelegate(pp.MyCallBack));

        // Output: 
        //   PING! from defaultDomain 
        //   PONG! from defaultDomain
    }

    // Callback will always execute within defaultDomain due to inheritance from 
    // MarshalByRefObject 
    public void MyCallBack()
    {
        string name = AppDomain.CurrentDomain.FriendlyName;
        if (name == AppDomain.CurrentDomain.SetupInformation.ApplicationName)
        {
            name = "defaultDomain";
        }
        Console.WriteLine(greetings + " from " + name);
    }
}
