Endpoints Property

ServiceDescription.Endpoints Property


Gets the collection of endpoints from the service description.

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

public ServiceEndpointCollection Endpoints { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.ServiceModel.Description.ServiceEndpointCollection

The ServiceEndpointCollection that contains the endpoints defined for the service.

The endpoints in the ServiceEndpointCollection returned by this method each contain the address, binding, contract, and behavior information required to communicate with the service. To access this information, you must retrieve the ServiceEndpoint from the collection with the Find method that employs the relevant search criteria. Then the ServiceEndpoint properties can be used to access the information. For example, the ContractDescription is accessed by the Contract property.

Export metadata about a service endpoint by passing ServiceEndpoint as a parameter to ExportEndpoint(ServiceEndpoint).

// Iterate through the endpoints contained in the ServiceDescription
ServiceEndpointCollection sec = svcDesc.Endpoints;
foreach (ServiceEndpoint se in sec)
    Console.WriteLine("\tAddress: {0}", se.Address.ToString());
    Console.WriteLine("\tBinding: {0}", se.Binding.ToString());
    Console.WriteLine("\tContract: {0}", se.Contract.ToString());
    KeyedByTypeCollection<IEndpointBehavior> behaviors = se.Behaviors;
    foreach (IEndpointBehavior behavior in behaviors)
        Console.WriteLine("Behavior: {0}", behavior.ToString());
