ClientBase<TChannel> Constructor (InstanceContext)

Initializes a new instance of the ClientBase<TChannel> class using the callbackInstance as the callback object in a duplex conversation.

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

protected ClientBase(
	InstanceContext callbackInstance
)

Parameters

callbackInstance
Type: System.ServiceModel.InstanceContext
The callback object that the client application uses to listen for messages from the connected service.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

The callback instance is null.

InvalidOperationException

Either there is no default endpoint information in the configuration file, more than one endpoint in the file, or no configuration file.

Use this constructor when the service contract requires a callback service instance. The target endpoint is constructed from the type parameter and information in the application configuration file.

The following code example shows how to use this constructor with a SampleDuplexHelloClient class to pass a callback object that listens for messages from the service.


using System;
using System.ServiceModel;
using System.ServiceModel.Channels;
using System.Threading;

namespace Microsoft.WCF.Documentation
{

   IncludeExceptionDetailInFaults= true,

  {
    AutoResetEvent waitHandle;

    public Client()
    {
      waitHandle = new AutoResetEvent(false);
    }

    public void Run()
    {
      // Picks up configuration from the configuration file.
      SampleDuplexHelloClient wcfClient
        = new SampleDuplexHelloClient(new InstanceContext(this), "WSDualHttpBinding_SampleDuplexHello");
      try
      {
        Console.ForegroundColor = ConsoleColor.White;
        Console.WriteLine("Enter a greeting to send and press ENTER: ");
        Console.Write(">>> ");
        Console.ForegroundColor = ConsoleColor.Green;
        string greeting = Console.ReadLine();
        Console.ForegroundColor = ConsoleColor.White;
        Console.WriteLine("Called service with: \r\n\t" + greeting);
        wcfClient.Hello(greeting);
        Console.WriteLine("Execution passes service call and moves to the WaitHandle.");
        this.waitHandle.WaitOne();
        Console.ForegroundColor = ConsoleColor.Blue;
        Console.WriteLine("Set was called.");
        Console.Write("Press ");
        Console.ForegroundColor = ConsoleColor.Red;
        Console.Write("ENTER");
        Console.ForegroundColor = ConsoleColor.Blue;
        Console.Write(" to exit...");
        Console.ReadLine();
      }
      catch (TimeoutException timeProblem)
      {
        Console.WriteLine("The service operation timed out. " + timeProblem.Message);
        Console.ReadLine();
      }
      catch (CommunicationException commProblem)
      {
        Console.WriteLine("There was a communication problem. " + commProblem.Message);
        Console.ReadLine();
      }
    }
    public static void Main()
    {
      Client client = new Client();
      client.Run();
    }

    public void Reply(string response)
    {
      Console.WriteLine("Received output.");
      Console.WriteLine("\r\n\t" + response);
      this.waitHandle.Set();
    }
  }
