ContractAdapter Class

Provides methods for sharing and readapting add-ins.

Namespace:  System.AddIn.Pipeline
Assembly:  System.AddIn (in System.AddIn.dll)

public final class ContractAdapter

You can use this class to share an add-in with another host that does not have the same pipeline to that add-in (particularly, another host that does not have the same host view of the add-in).

If you need to adapt an activated add-in from its host view to the contract, use the ViewToContractAdapter method.

If you have an instance of the contract and need to convert it to the host view, use the ContractToViewAdapter method.


Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
