ClientSponsor Class

ClientSponsor Class

Provides a default implementation for a lifetime sponsor class.

Namespace: System.Runtime.Remoting.Lifetime
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public class ClientSponsor : MarshalByRefObject, ISponsor
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(true) */ 
public class ClientSponsor extends MarshalByRefObject implements ISponsor
public class ClientSponsor extends MarshalByRefObject implements ISponsor

The current lifetime sponsor implementation can be used to sponsor objects by specifying the required renewal TimeSpan.


This class makes a link demand and an inheritance demand at the class level. A SecurityException is thrown when either the immediate caller or the derived class does not have infrastructure permission. For details about security demands, see Link Demands and Inheritance Demands.

The following example illustrates the ClientSponsor class to extend the life of a class-activated remote object.

using System;
using System.Runtime.Remoting;
using System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels;
using System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.Tcp;
using System.Runtime.Remoting.Lifetime;
namespace RemotingSamples

   class HelloClient
       static void Main()
         // Register a channel.
         TcpChannel myChannel = new TcpChannel ();

         // Get the remote object.
         HelloService myService = new HelloService();

         // Get a sponsor for renewal of time.
         ClientSponsor mySponsor = new ClientSponsor();

         // Register the service with sponsor.

         // Set renewaltime.
         mySponsor.RenewalTime = TimeSpan.FromMinutes(2);

         // Renew the lease.
         ILease myLease = (ILease)mySponsor.InitializeLifetimeService();
         TimeSpan myTime = mySponsor.Renewal(myLease);
         Console.WriteLine("Renewed time in minutes is " + myTime.Minutes.ToString());

         // Call the remote method.

         // Unregister the channel.
