ClientViaBehavior Class

The ClientViaBehavior is used by clients to specify the URI for which the transport channel should be created.


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

public class ClientViaBehavior : IEndpointBehavior

The ClientViaBehavior type exposes the following members.

Public methodClientViaBehaviorInitializes a new instance of the ClientViaBehavior class.

Public propertyUriGets or set the URI for which the transport channel should be created.

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.)

Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodIEndpointBehavior.AddBindingParametersIs not implemented.
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodIEndpointBehavior.ApplyClientBehaviorSets the Via to the URI for which the transport channel is created.
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodIEndpointBehavior.ApplyDispatchBehaviorImplements a modification or extension of the service across an endpoint.
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodIEndpointBehavior.ValidateIs not implemented.

If such a behavior exists in the behavior collection on a client endpoint, the transport uses the URI that it provides, while all the other channel layers in the stack use the EndpointAddress provided at ChannelFactory construction time. This EndpointAddress also becomes the WS-Addressing To header.

Use this behavior when the immediate network destination is not the intended processor of the message to enable multiple-hop conversations when the calling application does not necessarily know the ultimate destination or when the destination Via header is not an address.

You can also set this value using the <clientVia> element in a client application configuration file.
