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

[SecurityPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Flags = SecurityPermissionFlag.Infrastructure)]
public static Type GetServerTypeForUri(
	string URI


Type: System.String

The URI of the object whose Type is requested.

Return Value

Type: System.Type
The Type of the object with the specified URI.


Either the immediate caller does not have infrastructure permission, or at least one of the callers higher in the callstack does not have permission to retrieve the type information of non-public members.

Because remoting identifies endpoints using URIs, the GetServerTypeForUri method is very useful in the pluggable parts of the remoting infrastructure (for example, channel sinks, dynamic sinks, and context sinks) that use IMessage objects, because the current method will return the associated type object from the URI.
