UrlAttribute Class

UrlAttribute Class

Defines an attribute that can be used at the call site to specify the URL where the activation will happen. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace: System.Runtime.Remoting.Activation
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[SerializableAttribute] 
[ComVisibleAttribute(true)] 
public ref class UrlAttribute sealed : public ContextAttribute
/** @attribute SerializableAttribute() */ 
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(true) */ 
public final class UrlAttribute extends ContextAttribute
SerializableAttribute 
ComVisibleAttribute(true) 
public final class UrlAttribute extends ContextAttribute

The UrlAttribute is passed in the activation attributes array as a parameter to Activator.CreateInstance when creating activated objects with the CreateInstance method.

For more information about using attributes, see Extending Metadata Using Attributes.

The following code example illustrates the use of the UrlAttribute in setting up client-activated remoting. The example contains three parts: a client, a server, and a remote object that is used by the client and server.

The following code example shows a client:

#using <System.Runtime.Remoting.dll>
#using <System.dll>
#using "RemoteObject.dll"

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Runtime::Remoting;
using namespace System::Runtime::Remoting::Activation;
using namespace System::Runtime::Remoting::Channels;
using namespace System::Runtime::Remoting::Channels::Tcp;

[STAThread]
int main()
{
   
   // Report initial status.
   Console::WriteLine( "Client starting." );
   
   // Register TCP channel.
   ChannelServices::RegisterChannel( gcnew TcpChannel );
   
   // Create UrlAttribute.
   UrlAttribute^ attribute = gcnew UrlAttribute( "tcp://localhost:1234/RemoteApp" );
   Console::WriteLine( "UrlAttribute value: {0}", attribute->UrlValue );
   
   array<Object^>^activationAttributes = {attribute};
   
   // Use UrlAttribute to register for client activated remote object.
   RemotingConfiguration::RegisterActivatedClientType( RemoteObject::typeid, "tcp://localhost:1234/RemoteApp" );
   
   // Activate remote object.
   Console::WriteLine( "Activating remote object." );
   RemoteObject ^ obj = dynamic_cast<RemoteObject^>(Activator::CreateInstance( RemoteObject::typeid, nullptr, activationAttributes ));
   
   // Invoke a method on it.
   Console::WriteLine( "Invoking Hello() on remote object." );
   obj->Hello();
   
   // Inform user of termination.
   Console::WriteLine( "Terminating client." );
}


The following code example shows a server for this client:

#using <System.Runtime.Remoting.dll>
#using <System.dll>
#using "RemoteObject.dll"

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Runtime::Remoting;
using namespace System::Runtime::Remoting::Channels;
using namespace System::Runtime::Remoting::Channels::Tcp;

[STAThread]
int main()
{
   
   // Report status to user.
   Console::WriteLine( "Server starting." );
   
   // Register the TCP channel.
   ChannelServices::RegisterChannel( gcnew TcpChannel( 1234 ) );
   
   // Set application name.
   RemotingConfiguration::ApplicationName = "RemoteApp";
   
   // Register object for client activated remoting.
   RemotingConfiguration::RegisterActivatedServiceType( RemoteObject::typeid );
   
   // Wait until termination.
   Console::WriteLine( "Press enter to end." );
   Console::ReadLine();
   Console::WriteLine( "Terminating server." );
}


The following code example shows the remote object that is used by the client and the server:

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Security;
using namespace System::Security::Permissions;

[assembly:AllowPartiallyTrustedCallersAttribute];
public ref class RemoteObject: public MarshalByRefObject
{
public:
   RemoteObject()
   {
      
      // Report object construction to server's console.
      Console::WriteLine( "You have called the constructor." );
   }

   void Hello()
   {
      
      // Report method invocation to server's console.
      Console::WriteLine( "You have called Hello()." );
   }

};
