OperationContextScope Constructor (IContextChannel)

 

Initializes a new instance of the OperationContextScope class that uses the specified IContextChannel to create a new OperationContext for the scope.

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

public OperationContextScope(
	IContextChannel channel
)

Parameters

channel
Type: System.ServiceModel.IContextChannel

The channel to use when creating the scope for a new OperationContext.

Use the OperationContextScope constructor to create a new OperationContext for a client channel that can be used to add or modify outbound message headers, read incoming message headers, or access other run-time properties of the OperationContext.

The headers added to the OperationContext.IncomingMessageHeaders property of the newly created OperationContext apply only to the channel that was passed to the OperationContextScope constructor. If the user creates a new channel within its scope then the headers are not applied to messages sent on the new channel.

The following example shows how to use the OperationContextScope to create a new context in a client application in order to add a custom header to the outgoing message.

SampleServiceClient wcfClient = new SampleServiceClient(new InstanceContext(this));
try
{
  using (OperationContextScope scope = new OperationContextScope(wcfClient.InnerChannel))
  {
    MessageHeader header
      = MessageHeader.CreateHeader(
      "Service-Bound-CustomHeader",
      "http://Microsoft.WCF.Documentation",
      "Custom Happy Value."
      );
    OperationContext.Current.OutgoingMessageHeaders.Add(header);

    // Making calls.
    Console.WriteLine("Enter the greeting to send: ");
    string greeting = Console.ReadLine();

    //Console.ReadLine();
    header = MessageHeader.CreateHeader(
        "Service-Bound-OneWayHeader",
        "http://Microsoft.WCF.Documentation",
        "Different Happy Value."
      );
    OperationContext.Current.OutgoingMessageHeaders.Add(header);

    // One-way
    wcfClient.Push(greeting);
    this.wait.WaitOne();

    // Done with service. 
    wcfClient.Close();
    Console.WriteLine("Done!");
    Console.ReadLine();
  }
}
catch (TimeoutException timeProblem)
{
  Console.WriteLine("The service operation timed out. " + timeProblem.Message);
  Console.ReadLine();
  wcfClient.Abort();
}
catch (CommunicationException commProblem)
{
  Console.WriteLine("There was a communication problem. " + commProblem.Message);
  Console.ReadLine();
  wcfClient.Abort();
}
