IClientMessageInspector.BeforeSendRequest Method

Enables inspection or modification of a message before a request message is sent to a service.

Namespace:  System.ServiceModel.Dispatcher
Assembly:  System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)

Object BeforeSendRequest(
	ref Message request,
	IClientChannel channel
)

Parameters

request
Type: System.ServiceModel.Channels.Message%
The message to be sent to the service.
channel
Type: System.ServiceModel.IClientChannel
The client object channel.

Return Value

Type: System.Object
The object that is returned as the correlationState argument of the AfterReceiveReply method. This is null if no correlation state is used.
The best practice is to make this a System.Guid to ensure that no two correlationState objects are the same.

Implement the BeforeSendRequest to inspect or modify a request message before it is sent.

The following code example shows an implementation that writes strings to the console when the implementation is called.


#region IClientMessageInspector Members
public void AfterReceiveReply(ref System.ServiceModel.Channels.Message reply, object correlationState)
{
  Console.WriteLine("IClientMessageInspector.AfterReceiveReply called.");
  Console.WriteLine("Message: {0}", reply.ToString());
}

public object BeforeSendRequest(ref System.ServiceModel.Channels.Message request, IClientChannel channel)
{
  Console.WriteLine("IClientMessageInspector.BeforeSendRequest called.");
  return null;
}


The following code example shows how to use an System.ServiceModel.Description.IEndpointBehavior to insert the client message inspector in the client endpoint.


#region IEndpointBehavior Members
public void AddBindingParameters(
  ServiceEndpoint endpoint, BindingParameterCollection bindingParameters
) { return; }

public void ApplyClientBehavior(ServiceEndpoint endpoint, ClientRuntime clientRuntime)
{
  clientRuntime.MessageInspectors.Add(new Inspector());
  foreach (ClientOperation op in clientRuntime.Operations)
    op.ParameterInspectors.Add(new Inspector());
}

public void ApplyDispatchBehavior(ServiceEndpoint endpoint, EndpointDispatcher endpointDispatcher)
{
  endpointDispatcher.DispatchRuntime.MessageInspectors.Add(new Inspector());
  foreach (DispatchOperation op in endpointDispatcher.DispatchRuntime.Operations)
    op.ParameterInspectors.Add(new Inspector());
}

public void Validate(ServiceEndpoint endpoint){ return; }


Finally, the following code example shows how to modify the client configuration file to use the endpoint behavior with a particular endpoint.


  <client>
      <endpoint 
        address="http://localhost:8080/SampleService" 
        behaviorConfiguration="clientInspectorsAdded" 
        binding="wsHttpBinding"
        bindingConfiguration="WSHttpBinding_ISampleService" 
        contract="ISampleService"
        name="WSHttpBinding_ISampleService"
      >
      </endpoint>
  </client>
<behaviors>
  <endpointBehaviors>
    <behavior name="clientInspectorsAdded">
      <clientInterceptors />
    </behavior>
  </endpointBehaviors>
</behaviors>
