IMethodMessage.HasVarArgs Property

Gets a value indicating whether the message has variable arguments.

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

bool HasVarArgs { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the method can accept a variable number of arguments; otherwise, false.


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

The following example code shows a custom proxy that overrides RealProxy.Invoke in order to write the message information to the console, including whether the method call has variable arguments.

// Overriding the Invoke method of RealProxy. 
public override IMessage Invoke(IMessage message)
   IMethodMessage myMethodMessage = (IMethodMessage)message;

   Console.WriteLine("**** Begin Invoke ****");
   Console.WriteLine("\tType is : " + myType);
   Console.WriteLine("\tMethod name : " +  myMethodMessage.MethodName);

   for (int i=0; i < myMethodMessage.ArgCount; i++)
      Console.WriteLine("\tArgName is : " + myMethodMessage.GetArgName(i));
      Console.WriteLine("\tArgValue is: " + myMethodMessage.GetArg(i));

       Console.WriteLine("\t The method have variable arguments!!");
       Console.WriteLine("\t The method does not have variable arguments!!");

   // Dispatch the method call to the real object.
   Object returnValue = myType.InvokeMember( myMethodMessage.MethodName, BindingFlags.InvokeMethod, null,
                                        myObjectInstance, myMethodMessage.Args );
   Console.WriteLine("**** End Invoke ****");

   // Build the return message to pass back to the transparent proxy.
   ReturnMessage myReturnMessage = new ReturnMessage( returnValue, null, 0, null,
       (IMethodCallMessage)message );
   return myReturnMessage;
	// Overriding the Invoke method of RealProxy.
	IMessage* Invoke(IMessage* message) 
		IMethodMessage* myMethodMessage = dynamic_cast<IMethodMessage*>(message);

		Console::WriteLine(S"**** Begin Invoke ****");
		Console::WriteLine(S"\tType is : {0}", myType);
		Console::WriteLine(S"\tMethod name : {0}", myMethodMessage->MethodName);

		for (int i=0; i < myMethodMessage->ArgCount; i++) 
			Console::WriteLine(S"\tArgName is : {0}", myMethodMessage->GetArgName(i));
			Console::WriteLine(S"\tArgValue is: {0}", myMethodMessage->GetArg(i));

		if (myMethodMessage->HasVarArgs)
			Console::WriteLine(S"\t The method have variable arguments!!");
			Console::WriteLine(S"\t The method does not have variable arguments!!");

		// Dispatch the method call to the real Object*.
		Object* returnValue = myType->InvokeMember(myMethodMessage->MethodName, BindingFlags::InvokeMethod, 0,
			myObjectInstance, myMethodMessage->Args);
		Console::WriteLine(S"**** End Invoke ****");

		// Build the return message to pass back to the transparent proxy.
		ReturnMessage* myReturnMessage = new ReturnMessage(returnValue, 0, 0, 0,
		return myReturnMessage;
