Provides a callback mechanism that can create an instance of a service on demand.
Assembly: System (in System.dll)
[ComVisibleAttribute(true)] [HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, SharedState = true)] public delegate Object ServiceCreatorCallback( IServiceContainer container, Type serviceType )
- Type: System.ComponentModel.Design.IServiceContainer
The service container that requested the creation of the service.
- Type: System.Type
The type of service to create.
Return ValueType: System.Object
The service specified by serviceType, or null if the service could not be created.
provides a mechanism to publish services that you can request to have created when needed, rather than the service being created immediately when the designer loads. You can use a callback function if the service is not essential and may not be used. A service published by using a does not use as many additional resources if it is not requested and created. To use a callback function to publish your service, pass a to the AddService method of an IServiceContainer.
The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: SharedState. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.
The following code example shows how to publish a service using a callback function.
// The following code shows how to publish a service using a callback function. // Creates a service creator callback. ServiceCreatorCallback callback1 = new ServiceCreatorCallback(myCallBackMethod); // Adds the service using its type and the service creator callback. serviceContainer.AddService(typeof(myService), callback1);
