System.Runtime.Remoting.Messaging Namespace

The System.Runtime.Remoting.Messaging namespace contains classes used to create and transmit messages. The remoting infrastructure uses messages to communicate with remote objects. Messages are used to transmit remote method calls, to activate remote objects, and to communicate information. A message object carries a set of named properties, including action identifiers, envoy information, and parameters. Some of the most important classes of the System.Runtime.Remoting.Messaging namespace are the AsyncResult class, the RemotingSurrogateSelector class, and the ReturnMessage class.

The AsyncResult class stores and returns the results of an asynchronous method call. AsyncResult instances contain the return value, call status, the delegate used for the call, and the other information about the asynchronous method call.

The RemotingSurrogateSelector class can be used to control serialization of objects that extend MarshalByRefObject. A RemotingSurrogateSelector selects the surrogate used in serialization and deserialization of such objects. A surrogate is an object that can control serialization or deserialization of an object.

The ReturnMessage class holds information returned after a remote method call. A ReturnMessage holds the return value and any out or ref parameters that resulted from the remote method call.

  Class Description
Public class AsyncResult Encapsulates the results of an asynchronous operation on a delegate.
Public class CallContext Provides a set of properties that are carried with the execution code path. This class cannot be inherited.
Public class ConstructionCall Infrastructure. Implements the IConstructionCallMessage interface to create a request message that constitutes a constructor call on a remote object.
Public class ConstructionResponse Infrastructure. Implements the IConstructionReturnMessage interface to create a message that responds to a call to instantiate a remote object.
Public class Header Defines the out-of-band data for a call.
Public class InternalMessageWrapper Infrastructure. Wraps remoting data for passing between message sinks, either for requests from client to server or for the subsequent responses.
Public class LogicalCallContext Provides a set of properties that are carried with the execution code path during remote method calls.
Public class MethodCall Infrastructure. Implements the IMethodCallMessage interface to create a request message that acts as a method call on a remote object.
Public class MethodCallMessageWrapper Infrastructure. Implements the IMethodCallMessage interface to create a request message that acts as a method call on a remote object.
Public class MethodResponse Infrastructure. Implements the IMethodReturnMessage interface to create a message that acts as a method response on a remote object.
Public class MethodReturnMessageWrapper Infrastructure. Implements the IMethodReturnMessage interface to create a message that acts as a response to a method call on a remote object.
Public class OneWayAttribute Marks a method as one way, without a return value and out or ref parameters.
Public class RemotingSurrogateSelector Selects the remoting surrogate that can be used to serialize an object that derives from a MarshalByRefObject.
Public class ReturnMessage Holds a message returned in response to a method call on a remote object.
  Interface Description
Public interface ILogicalThreadAffinative Marks an object that can propagate outside of an AppDomain in a LogicalCallContext.
Public interface IMessage Contains communication data sent between cooperating message sinks.
Public interface IMessageCtrl Provides a way to control asynchronous messages after they have dispatched using the IMessageSink.AsyncProcessMessage.
Public interface IMessageSink Defines the interface for a message sink.
Public interface IMethodCallMessage Defines the method call message interface.
Public interface IMethodMessage Defines the method message interface.
Public interface IMethodReturnMessage Defines the method call return message interface.
Public interface IRemotingFormatter Provides the remote procedure call (RPC) interface for all formatters.
  Delegate Description
Public delegate HeaderHandler Represents the method that will handle processing of headers on the stream during deserialization.
Public delegate MessageSurrogateFilter Determines whether the RemotingSurrogateSelector class should ignore a particular IMessage property while creating an ObjRef for a MarshalByRefObject class.
