Represents the base interface for all contracts that are used for communication between components that are updated independently.
Assembly: System.AddIn.Contract (in System.AddIn.Contract.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|AcquireLifetimeToken||Specifies that the contract is accessible to a client until the client revokes the contract.|
|GetRemoteHashCode||Returns a hash code for the .|
|QueryContract||Returns a contract that is implemented by this contract.|
|RemoteEquals||Indicates whether the specified contract is equal to this .|
|RemoteToString||Returns a string representation of the current .|
|RevokeLifetimeToken||Specifies that the contract is no longer accessible to a client.|
The interface defines a contract that independently updated components, such as an application and an add-in, can use to communicate. Components can use to communicate across process or application domain boundaries, or to communicate with other components in the same process or application domain. serves a similar purpose for components created using the .NET Framework as the IUnknown interface serves for components created using COM. To determine whether an object implements a particular contract, use the QueryContract method.
