DataServiceContext Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the DataServiceContext class with the specified serviceRoot.

Namespace:  System.Data.Services.Client
Assembly:  System.Data.Services.Client (in System.Data.Services.Client.dll)

public DataServiceContext(
	Uri serviceRoot


Type: System.Uri

An absolute URI that identifies the root of a data service.


When the serviceRoot is null.


If the serviceRoot is not an absolute URI


If the serviceRoot is a well formed URI without a query or query fragment.

The client library expects the baseURI to point to the root of a data service, but it does not issue a request to validate it. If the baseURI does not identify the root of the service, the behavior of the client library is undefined.

A URI with a trailing slash is equivalent to one without the trailing character.
