Binding.CanBuildChannelFactory<TChannel> Method (BindingParameterCollection)
Returns a value that indicates whether the current binding can build a channel factory stack on the client that satisfies the collection of binding parameters specified.
Assembly: System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)
public virtual bool CanBuildChannelFactory<TChannel>( BindingParameterCollection parameters )
The type of channel for which the factory is being tested.
- Type: System.ServiceModel.Channels.BindingParameterCollection
The BindingParameterCollection that specifies requirements for the channel factory that is built.
Return ValueType: System.Boolean
true if the specified channel factory stack can be build on the client; otherwise, false.
Use this method if you want to check that the channel factory for channels of type TChannel can be build for the binding parameters specified before attempting to actually build the factory. Alternatively, try to build the channel factory by calling BuildChannelFactory<TChannel>(BindingParameterCollection) and catch the exception generated if it cannot be built.
