SoapClientFormatterSink Class

Provides the implementation for a client formatter sink that uses the SoapFormatter.


Namespace:  System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels
Assembly:  System.Runtime.Remoting (in System.Runtime.Remoting.dll)

public class SoapClientFormatterSink : IClientFormatterSink, 
	IMessageSink, IClientChannelSink, IChannelSinkBase

The SoapClientFormatterSink type exposes the following members.

Public methodSoapClientFormatterSinkInitializes a new instance of the SoapClientFormatterSink class.

Public propertyNextChannelSinkGets the next IClientChannelSink in the sink chain.
Public propertyNextSinkGets the next IMessageSink in the sink chain.
Public propertyPropertiesGets a IDictionary of properties for the current channel sink.

Public methodAsyncProcessMessageAsynchronously processes the provided message.
Public methodAsyncProcessRequestRequests asynchronous processing of a method call on the current sink.
Public methodAsyncProcessResponseRequests asynchronous processing of a response to a method call on the current sink.
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 methodGetRequestStreamReturns the Stream onto which the provided message is to be serialized.
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodProcessMessageRequests message processing from the current sink.
Public methodSyncProcessMessageSynchronously processes the provided message.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

The function of the formatter sink is to generate the necessary headers and serialize the message to the stream. After reaching the formatter sink, the IMessage is forwarded to all sinks in the channel sink chain through the ProcessMessage or AsyncProcessRequest calls. At this stage the message has already been serialized and is provided as information only. Sinks that need to create or modify the message need to be placed in the sink chain before the formatter. This can be achieved by implementing both the IMessageSink and IClientChannelSink interfaces. The formatter sink can be placed in the sink chain later.




Specifies whether the formatter will include versioning information. Values are true or false.
