ISponsor Interface

Indicates that the implementer wants to be a lifetime lease sponsor.

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

'Declaration
<ComVisibleAttribute(True)> _
Public Interface ISponsor
'Usage
Dim instance As ISponsor

/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(true) */ 
public interface ISponsor
ComVisibleAttribute(true) 
public interface ISponsor

An object must implement the ISponsor interface if it needs to request a lease renewal for a particular object. An object that implements the ISponsor interface can become a sponsor by registering itself with the lease manager. The ISponsor interface is used by the lifetime service to call back to the sponsor.

Public Class MyClientSponsor
   Inherits MarshalByRefObject
   Implements ISponsor 
   Private lastRenewal As DateTime
   
   Public Sub New()
      lastRenewal = DateTime.Now
   End Sub 'New
   
   <SecurityPermission(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Flags := SecurityPermissionFlag.Infrastructure)> _
   Public Function Renewal(lease As ILease) As TimeSpan Implements ISponsor.Renewal
      Console.WriteLine("Request to renew the lease time.")
      Console.WriteLine("Time since last renewal: " + _ 
                      DateTime.op_Subtraction(DateTime.Now, lastRenewal).ToString())
      
      lastRenewal = DateTime.Now
      Return TimeSpan.FromSeconds(20)
   End Function 'Renewal
End Class 'MyClientSponsor
