Gets or sets the name of the service endpoint.

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

public string Name { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String

The name the service endpoint. The default value is the concatenation of the binding name and the contract description name. For example, Binding.Name +'_' + ContractDescription.Name.

Services may have multiple endpoints, so the endpoint Name is distinct from the name of the service. The service name is accessed using the Name property.

System_CAPS_noteNote

When accessed from the service, this property is populated by the <endpoint name="endpointName"> configuration element. When accessed on the client, this property is null. When the property getter is called (again on the client) it populates this property with a default value based on the contract and binding.

Uri baseAddress = new Uri("http://localhost:8001/Simple");
ServiceHost serviceHost = new ServiceHost(typeof(CalculatorService), baseAddress);

ServiceEndpoint endpoint = serviceHost.AddServiceEndpoint(
    typeof(ICalculator),
    new WSHttpBinding(),
    "CalculatorServiceObject");

Console.WriteLine("Service endpoint {0} contains the following:", endpoint.Name);
Console.WriteLine("Binding: {0}", endpoint.Binding.ToString());
Console.WriteLine("Contract: {0}", endpoint.Contract.ToString());
Console.WriteLine("ListenUri: {0}", endpoint.ListenUri.ToString());
Console.WriteLine("ListenUriMode: {0}", endpoint.ListenUriMode.ToString());
