RequestContext ReceiveRequest()

Return Value

Type: System.ServiceModel.Channels.RequestContext

The RequestContext used to construct replies.

RequestContext encapsulates the request message and a mechanism for replying to that message.

ReceiveRequest can be called multiple times or concurrently. Only one ReceiveRequest call completes per request received.

If the request message received is larger that the maximum message size allowed by the binding being used, a QuotaExceededException is thrown. The maximum message size is set by the MaxReceivedMessageSize property. The default value is 65536 bytes.

The following code illustrates how to implement this method:

public RequestContext ReceiveRequest()
    return ReceiveRequest(DefaultReceiveTimeout);
