	Type contractType


Type: System.Type

The Type of contract for the service endpoint.

Return Value

The first ServiceEndpoint of the specified contract type or null if none was found.

Exception Condition

contractType is null.

This Find(Type) overload is specific to the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) programming model. It looks at the ContractType property for each endpoint. The ContractType may be null if the ContractDescription was not created from the WCF programming model (types with *Contract attributes).

There are potentially multiple endpoints that could satisfy the criteria. The method returns the first one encountered in the collection. If you need to find all of the ServiceEndpoint objects that satisfy the specified criteria, use one of the FindAll methods instead.
