Property Value

The amount of time to wait for a sponsor to return with a lease renewal time.

Exception typeCondition


The immediate caller makes the call through a reference to the interface and does not have infrastructure permission.

If the SponsorshipTimeout is TimeSpan.Zero, then this lease will not take sponsors.

If a sponsor does not respond to a call to renew a lease within the time-out period, it is assumed to be dead and is removed from the list of sponsors for the current lease.

The following example uses RemotingServices.GetLifetimeService to obtain an object that implements the ILease interface. To compile and run this example, you need the complete client, server, and shared library code found in the example for ILease.

// Register the channel.
TcpChannel myChannel = new TcpChannel ();

TimeSpan myTimeSpan = TimeSpan.FromMinutes(10);

// Create a remote object.
HelloService myService = new HelloService();

ILease myLease;
myLease = (ILease)RemotingServices.GetLifetimeService(myService);
if (myLease == null)
   Console.WriteLine("Cannot lease.");

Console.WriteLine ("Initial lease time is " + myLease.InitialLeaseTime);
Console.WriteLine ("Current lease time is " + myLease.CurrentLeaseTime);
Console.WriteLine ("Renew on call time is " + myLease.RenewOnCallTime);
Console.WriteLine ("Sponsorship timeout is " + myLease.SponsorshipTimeout);
Console.WriteLine ("Current lease state is " + myLease.CurrentState.ToString());
