WindowsStreamSecurityBindingElement.GetProperty<T> Method

Gets a specified object from the BindingContext.

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

public override T GetProperty<T>(
	BindingContext context
where T : class

Type Parameters


The object to get.

Return Value

Type: T
The specified object from the BindingContext or null if the object is not found.

This method receives a binding context as an input parameter, which represents the stack of binding elements. This method gets the specified object directly, delegates the inquiry to the next-lower binding element in the stack, or a combination of the two. It can modify the context if it delegates the inquiry. Each binding element in the stack can repeat this process, if it has been delegated to, until the bottom of the stack is reached. The object returned is usually a collection of properties.

If the type of T is ISecurityCapabilities, then an instance of this class is returned with SupportsClientAuthentication,

SupportsClientWindowsIdentity, and SupportsServerAuthentication all set to true, and SupportedRequestProtectionLevel and SupportedResponseProtectionLevel set to the current value in this binding.

If the type of T is IdentityVerifier, then a default instance of this class is returned.

This method is implemented by binding elements as well as by the run-time objects such as IChannelFactory, IChannelListener, and IChannel.
