public Func<string, Type> ResolveType { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Func<String, Type>
A function delegate that identifies an override function that is used to override the default type resolution option that is used by the client library.

Enables override of the default type resolution strategy that is used by the client library. Set this property to a delegate that identifies a function that resolves a namespace-qualified type name to a type in the client application. This enables the client to do custom mapping between the type name provided in a response from the server and a type on the client.

Overriding type resolution also enables inserting a custom mapping strategy between a type name and a type. It does not affect how a response is materialized to the identified type.
