WellKnownClientTypeEntry Class

Holds values for an object type registered on the client as a server-activated type (single call or singleton).


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

public class WellKnownClientTypeEntry : TypeEntry

The WellKnownClientTypeEntry type exposes the following members.

Public methodWellKnownClientTypeEntry(Type, String)Initializes a new instance of the WellKnownClientTypeEntry class with the given type and URL.
Public methodWellKnownClientTypeEntry(String, String, String)Initializes a new instance of the WellKnownClientTypeEntry class with the given type, assembly name, and URL.

Public propertyApplicationUrlGets or sets the URL of the application to activate the type in.
Public propertyAssemblyNameGets the assembly name of the object type configured to be a remote-activated type. (Inherited from TypeEntry.)
Public propertyObjectTypeGets the Type of the server-activated client type.
Public propertyObjectUrlGets the URL of the server-activated client object.
Public propertyTypeNameGets the full type name of the object type configured to be a remote-activated type. (Inherited from TypeEntry.)

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 methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns the full type name, assembly name, and object URL of the server-activated client type as a String. (Overrides Object.ToString().)

Server-activated types can be either single call or singleton. If a class is registered as a single call type, a new instance is created each time a call from the client arrives. All calls to a singleton object are handled by one instance of that object, unless that object has been collected.

Any client that knows the URI of a registered server-activated object can obtain a proxy for this object by registering the channel it prefers with ChannelServices and activating the object by calling new or Activator.GetObject. To activate a server-activated object with new, you must first register the server-activated object type on the client using the RegisterWellKnownClientType method. By calling RegisterWellKnownClientType, you are giving the remoting infrastructure the location of the remote object, which allows the new keyword to create it. If, on the other hand, you use the Activator.GetObject method to activate a server-activated object, you must supply it with the object's URL as an argument, so no prior registration on the client is necessary.

For a detailed description of server-activated objects and remote object activation, see [<topic://cpconActivation>].
