Creates a new BindingElement object initialized from the current class.
Assembly: System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)
This creates a complete copy of the current binding element object tree, also called a deep clone. A deep clone of an object creates a copy of the object and a copy of everything directly or indirectly referenced by that object. (This can also be described as copying the entire object graph.) Returning a deep clone enables the runtime to support the case in which multiple custom bindings share a custom binding element. If a deep clone is not returned, the run-time behavior is undefined.
A shallow clone of an object, by contrast, is a copy of the object only. If the object contains references to other objects, the shallow copy does not create copies of the referenced objects; instead, it copies only the references to the original objects.
