ContractBase Class

Provides a default implementation of IContract members.


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

public class ContractBase : MarshalByRefObject, 
	IContract, ISponsor

The ContractBase type exposes the following members.

Public methodContractBaseInitializes a new instance of the ContractBase class.

Public methodAcquireLifetimeTokenObtains a lifetime token.
Public methodCreateObjRefCreates an object that contains all the relevant information required to generate a proxy used to communicate with a remote object. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetLifetimeServiceRetrieves the current lifetime service object that controls the lifetime policy for this instance. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)
Public methodGetRemoteHashCodeGets the hash code for the current ContractBase object.
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodInitializeLifetimeServiceObtains a lifetime service object to control the lifetime policy for this instance. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)
Protected methodMemberwiseClone()Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseClone(Boolean)Creates a shallow copy of the current MarshalByRefObject object. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)
Protected methodOnFinalRevokeWhen overridden in an add-in-side adapter, releases native resources held by the adapter.
Public methodQueryContractReflects over the instance of a contract and returns the this pointer if the current object implements that contract.
Public methodRemoteEqualsCompares an object with a remote object for equality.
Public methodRemoteToStringGets a string that identifies a remote object.
Public methodRenewalInfrastructure. Requests a sponsoring client to renew the lease for the specified object.
Public methodRevokeLifetimeTokenRemoves the specified token from the list of outstanding lifetime tokens.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Contracts define the types and methods used by the host and the add-in. All contracts must derive from IContract. This class provides the default implementation of IContract members.
