ServiceHost Constructor (Type, Uri[])


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Initializes a new instance of the ServiceHost class with the type of service and its base addresses specified.

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

public ServiceHost(
	Type serviceType,
	params Uri[] baseAddresses


Type: System.Type

The type of hosted service.

Type: System.Uri[]

An array of type Uri that contains the base addresses for the hosted service.

Exception Condition

serviceType is null.

Use this constructor when you have the service type and you can create new instances of it when needed, even when you need a singleton instance. Use the ServiceHost(Object, Uri[]) constructor instead only when you want the service host to use a specific singleton instance of the service.

This sample illustrates how to use the ServiceHost class to host a Windows Communication Foundation service:

ServiceHost serviceHost = new ServiceHost(typeof(CalculatorService), baseAddress);
