ServiceEndpoint.Name Property

Gets or sets the name of the service endpoint.

Namespace:  System.ServiceModel.Description
Assembly:  System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)
public string Name { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The name the service endpoint. The default value is the concatenation of the binding name and the contract description name. For example, Binding.Name +'_' + ContractDescription.Name.

Services may have multiple endpoints, so the endpoint Name is distinct from the name of the service. The service name is accessed using the Name property.

NoteNote

When accessed from the service, this property is populated by the <endpoint name="endpointName"> configuration element. When accessed on the client, this property is null. When the property getter is called (again on the client) it populates this property with a default value based on the contract and binding.

Uri baseAddress = new Uri("http://localhost:8001/Simple");
ServiceHost serviceHost = new ServiceHost(typeof(CalculatorService), baseAddress);

ServiceEndpoint endpoint = serviceHost.AddServiceEndpoint(
    typeof(ICalculator),
    new WSHttpBinding(),
    "CalculatorServiceObject");

Console.WriteLine("Service endpoint {0} contains the following:", endpoint.Name);
Console.WriteLine("Binding: {0}", endpoint.Binding.ToString());
Console.WriteLine("Contract: {0}", endpoint.Contract.ToString());
Console.WriteLine("ListenUri: {0}", endpoint.ListenUri.ToString());
Console.WriteLine("ListenUriMode: {0}", endpoint.ListenUriMode.ToString());
