Defines the base class for all context-bound classes.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|CreateObjRef||Creates an object that contains all the relevant information required to generate a proxy used to communicate with a remote object. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetLifetimeService||Retrieves the current lifetime service object that controls the lifetime policy for this instance. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|InitializeLifetimeService||Obtains a lifetime service object to control the lifetime policy for this instance. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)|
|MemberwiseClone()||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|MemberwiseClone(Boolean)||Creates a shallow copy of the current MarshalByRefObject object. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
Objects that reside in a context and are bound to the context rules are called context-bound objects. A context is a set of properties or usage rules that define an environment where a collection of objects resides. The rules are enforced when the objects are entering or leaving a context. Objects that are not context-bound are called agile objects.
Contexts are created during object activation. A new object is placed into an existing context or into a new context created using the attributes included in the metadata of the type. Context-bound classes are marked with a ContextAttribute that provides the usage rules. The context properties that can be added include policies regarding synchronization and transactions.Notes to Implementers
The current version of the common language runtime does not support generic types or nongeneric types that have generic methods. Attempting to create an instance of such a type causes a TypeLoadException.
