BindingContext Class

Provides information about the addresses, bindings, binding elements and binding parameters required to build the channel listeners and channel factories.

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

public class BindingContext

The channel listeners and channel factories, in turn, construct the channel stacks used to process incoming and outgoing messages. The binding context also provides the linkage to the inner channel factories and channel listeners that are used to construct the channel and listener stacks. The binding context basically stores all of the dynamic information needed during the construction of the channel stack.


Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
