VirtualPathExtension Class

Contains the service's virtual path when the service is hosted in Internet Information Services (IIS) or Windows Process Activation Service (WAS).


Namespace:  System.ServiceModel.Activation
Assembly:  System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)

public sealed class VirtualPathExtension : IExtension<ServiceHostBase>

The VirtualPathExtension type exposes the following members.

Public propertyApplicationVirtualPathGets the virtual path of the IIS or WAS application that hosts the service.
Public propertySiteNameGets the site name of the IIS or WAS application that hosts the service.
Public propertyVirtualPathGets the virtual path used by a service.

Public methodAttachThis method is provided to support the infrastructure.
Public methodDetachThis method is provided to support the infrastructure.
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 a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

This extension is present only for services hosted in IIS or WAS. Services can determine whether they are hosted in IIS or WAS by retrieving this extension from their ServiceHostBase, as shown in the following example.

The following example shows how to recover the VirtualPathExtension from the service host and return a value that it is hosted in IIS or WAS.

bool isHosted = false;
ServiceHostBase host = OperationContext.Current.Host;
VirtualPathExtension vpe = host.Extentions.Find<VirtualPathExtension>();

if( vpe != null )
Console.WriteLine("The virtualPath of the hosted Service is  {0}", vpe.VirtualPath);
