DynamicEndpoint Class

An endpoint that uses WS-Discovery to find the endpoint address dynamically at runtime.


Namespace:  System.ServiceModel.Discovery
Assembly:  System.ServiceModel.Discovery (in System.ServiceModel.Discovery.dll)

public class DynamicEndpoint : ServiceEndpoint

The DynamicEndpoint type exposes the following members.

Public methodDynamicEndpointInitializes a new instance of the DynamicEndpoint class with the specified ContractDescription and Binding.

Public propertyAddressGets or sets the endpoint address for the service endpoint. (Inherited from ServiceEndpoint.)
Public propertyBehaviorsGets the behaviors for the service endpoint. (Inherited from ServiceEndpoint.)
Public propertyBindingGets or sets the binding for the service endpoint. (Inherited from ServiceEndpoint.)
Public propertyContractGets the contract for the service endpoint. (Inherited from ServiceEndpoint.)
Public propertyDiscoveryEndpointProviderGets or sets an object that provides a discovery endpoint.
Public propertyFindCriteriaGets or sets the FindCriteria used to search for a service.
Public propertyIsSystemEndpointGets or sets whether the service endpoint is generated by the system as opposed to being user-defined. (Inherited from ServiceEndpoint.)
Public propertyListenUriGets or sets the URI at which the service endpoint listens. (Inherited from ServiceEndpoint.)
Public propertyListenUriModeGets or sets how the transport handles the URI that is provided for the service to listen on. (Inherited from ServiceEndpoint.)
Public propertyNameGets or sets the name of the service endpoint. (Inherited from ServiceEndpoint.)

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

When you use a DynamicEndpoint a DiscoveryClientBindingElement is added to the binding you specify in the DynamicEndpoint constructor if not already present. The FindCriteria property enables you to describe the service you want to use. The FindCriteria and the DiscoveryEndpoint used by the DynamicEndpoint override these values specified in the DiscoveryClientBindingElement.
