IOutputChannel.Send Method (Message)


Transmits a message to the destination of the output channel.

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

void Send(
	Message message


Type: System.ServiceModel.Channels.Message

The Message being sent on the output channel.

The destination for messages sent out on an output channel is specified at channel creation time.

The Send method does not guarantee the delivery of message to the remote endpoint. An implementation of IOutputChannel can silently drop messages for a variety of reasons. There may be no more buffer room, for example. If delivery guarantees are required, use IOutputSessionChannel.

Passing the message into the output channel causes the message to be consumed. After you call Send, you can no longer inspect the message or call Close on the message.

The following code illustrates how to implement this method:

public IAsyncResult BeginTryReceiveRequest(TimeSpan timeout, AsyncCallback callback, object state)
    TryReceiveRequestAsyncResult result = new TryReceiveRequestAsyncResult(this, timeout, callback, state);
    return result;
