Assembly:  System.AddIn.Contract (in System.AddIn.Contract.dll)

public static RemoteArgument CreateRemoteArgument(
	object value,
	bool isByRef,
	TypeCode typeCodeToUse


Type: System.Object

The argument that will be passed across process or application domain boundaries.

Type: System.Boolean

true to pass the argument by reference; otherwise, false.

Type: System.TypeCode

A TypeCode that indicates the type code of value, if value is not an Array. Otherwise, a TypeCode that indicates the type code of the elements in value.

Return Value

Type: System.AddIn.Contract.RemoteArgument

A RemoteArgument that represents the specified argument.

Exception Condition

The TypeCode of value is TypeCode.Object, value is not an IContract, and value is not null.


The TypeCode of value is TypeCode.Empty and value is not Missing.Value.


value does not implement the IConvertible interface, value is not null, and value is not an Array.


value is an Array that contains elements with a TypeCode value of TypeCode.Object.


The TypeCode of value is not TypeCode.DBNull and typeCodeToUse is TypeCode.DBNull.


typeCodeToUse does not specify a valid TypeCode value.

This method calls the RemoteArgument constructor that applies to the type of the value parameter.

You cannot use this method to create a RemoteArgument that represents a null array that contains elements of intrinsic data types. An intrinsic data type is a primitive data type (that is, the Type.IsPrimitive property of the type is true) or a String, Decimal, DateTime, or DBNull.
