IDuplexSession.CloseOutputSession Method (TimeSpan)

Terminates the outbound session that indicates that no more messages will be sent from this endpoint on the channel associated with the session within a specified interval of time.

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

void CloseOutputSession(
	TimeSpan timeout


Type: System.TimeSpan
The TimeSpan that specifies the interval of time within which the operation must complete.

Calling CloseOutputSession(TimeSpan) signals to the other side of the session that it should return null from any outstanding or subsequent calls made to Receive. CloseOutputSession is idempotent, so calling it again has no effect.

Terminating the outbound session does not affect the incoming session and so makes no statement about the ability to receive messages on the session associated with the input channel.

Notes to Implementers

CloseOutputSession is a session method that can interact with the IDuplexSessionChannel that owns the session. In particular, if your session lifetime is put together with your channel lifetime (like it is with TCP and reliable session and security):
