HttpTransportBindingElement.MaxBufferSize Property

Gets or sets the maximum size of the buffer to use. For buffered messages this value is the same as MaxReceivedMessageSize. For streamed messages, this value is the maximum size of the SOAP headers, which must be read in buffered mode.

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

public int MaxBufferSize { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The maximum size, in bytes, of the buffer.

For streamed messages, if the size of the message headers is greater than this property, then a QuotaExceededException is thrown. For a non-streamed message, if the message size is greater than this property, then the message is dropped.

If not specified, this defaults to 65536.

The following example sets this property to use when performing requests on the binding.

[C#]

HttpTransportBindingElement httpBinding = new HttpTransportBindingElement();
httpBinding.MaxBufferSize = 16384;
