'Declaration
Public Interface IExtension(Of T As {Object, IExtensibleObject(Of T)})
'Usage
Dim instance As IExtension(Of T)

Type Parameters

T

The object that participates in the custom behavior.

WCF allows you to extend System.ServiceModel.IExtensibleObject(Of T) objects (the System.ServiceModel.IContextChannel, System.ServiceModel.ServiceHost, System.ServiceModel.InstanceContext, and System.ServiceModel.OperationContext classes) by adding a new state or behavior by using its extensible object pattern. The extensible object pattern is used in WCF to either extend existing run-time classes with new functionality or to add new state features to an object.
