PeerName Class

Specifies the values that define a peer-to-peer PeerName object. A peer name is typically a string used to identify a peer resource.


Namespace:  System.Net.PeerToPeer
Assembly:  System.Net (in System.Net.dll)

public class PeerName : ISerializable, IEquatable<PeerName>

The PeerName type exposes the following members.

Public methodPeerName(String)Initializes a new object of type PeerName with the supplied fully qualified peer name String value.
Protected methodPeerName(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext)Populates a SerializationInfo object with the data needed to serialize the PeerName.
Public methodPeerName(String, PeerNameType)Initializes a new instance of the PeerName class.

Public propertyAuthorityReturns a string that specifies the Authority used by this PeerName object.
Public propertyClassifierReturns a string that contains the classifier for a peer-to-peer PeerName.
Public propertyIsSecuredGets a Boolean value that specifies whether this is a secured peer name.
Public propertyPeerHostNameGets the name of the peer-to-peer host. This is a DNS-encoded version of the PeerName which is equivalent to a PeerHostName in that they are both identifiers. The difference between the two is visual representation.

Public methodStatic memberCreateFromPeerHostNameCreates a new instance of the specified PeerHostName object with the specified peer host name.
Public methodStatic memberCreateRelativePeerNameCreates a new PeerName by replacing the Classifier field defined on the supplied PeerName object with the specified classifier string value.
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the content of this PeerName is equal to the content of another object. (Overrides Object.Equals(Object).)
Public methodEquals(PeerName)Performs a case-sensitive comparison of the current PeerName and the specified peer name.
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 methodGetHashCodeOverrides the GetHashCode method. (Overrides Object.GetHashCode().)
Protected methodGetObjectDataPopulates a serialization information object with the data needed to serialize the PeerName.
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string representation of the current PeerName object. (Overrides Object.ToString().)

Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodISerializable.GetObjectDataImplements the ISerializable interface and returns the data needed to serialize the PeerName instance.
