BinaryFormatter.DeserializeMethodResponse Method

Deserializes a response to a remote method call from the provided Stream.

Namespace:  System.Runtime.Serialization.Formatters.Binary
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

member DeserializeMethodResponse : 
        serializationStream:Stream * 
        handler:HeaderHandler * 
        methodCallMessage:IMethodCallMessage -> Object 


Type: System.IO.Stream
The stream from which to deserialize the object graph.
Type: System.Runtime.Remoting.Messaging.HeaderHandler
The HeaderHandler that handles any headers in the serializationStream. Can be a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
Type: System.Runtime.Remoting.Messaging.IMethodCallMessage
The IMethodCallMessage that contains details about where the call came from.

Return Value

Type: System.Object
The deserialized response to the remote method call.


The serializationStream is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).


The serializationStream supports seeking, but its length is 0.


The caller does not have the required permission.

Details about the caller object are not sent to the remote object during the method call. Instead, these details are obtained from the original method call that is passed to the current method in the methodCallMessage parameter.

In order for deserialization to succeed the current position in the stream must be at the beginning of the object graph.
