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

Object^ DeserializeMethodResponse (
	Stream^ serializationStream, 
	HeaderHandler^ handler, 
	IMethodCallMessage^ methodCallMessage
public Object DeserializeMethodResponse (
	Stream serializationStream, 
	HeaderHandler handler, 
	IMethodCallMessage methodCallMessage
public function DeserializeMethodResponse (
	serializationStream : Stream, 
	handler : HeaderHandler, 
	methodCallMessage : IMethodCallMessage
) : Object



The stream from which to deserialize the object graph.


The HeaderHandler that handles any headers in the serializationStream. Can be a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).


The IMethodCallMessage that contains details about where the call came from.

Return Value

The deserialized response to the remote method call.

Exception typeCondition


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.
