A binding element that can be added to a client application to take advantage of the Discovery client channel. The Discovery client channel allows a client application to access a discoverable service without knowing the endpoint address in advance.
Assembly: System.ServiceModel.Discovery (in System.ServiceModel.Discovery.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|DiscoveryClientBindingElement()||Initializes a new instance of the class with default values.|
|DiscoveryClientBindingElement(DiscoveryEndpointProvider, FindCriteria)||Initializes a new instance of the class with the specified endpoint provider and service finding criteria.|
|BuildChannelFactory<TChannel>||Initializes a channel factory for producing channels of a specific type from the binding context. (Overrides BindingElement.BuildChannelFactory<TChannel>(BindingContext).)|
|BuildChannelListener<TChannel>||Building a channel listener is not supported by the Discovery client channel. This method can be overridden to initialize a channel listener to accept channels of a specified type from the binding context. (Overrides BindingElement.BuildChannelListener<TChannel>(BindingContext).)|
|CanBuildChannelFactory<TChannel>||Returns a value that indicates whether the current binding can build a channel factory stack on the client. (Overrides BindingElement.CanBuildChannelFactory<TChannel>(BindingContext).)|
|CanBuildChannelListener<TChannel>||Because building a channel listener is not supported by the Discovery client channel, this method always returns false. It may be extended to return a value that indicates whether the binding element can build a listener for a specific type of channel. (Overrides BindingElement.CanBuildChannelListener<TChannel>(BindingContext).)|
|Clone||Creates a copy of the binding element. (Overrides BindingElement.Clone().)|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetProperty<T>||Returns an object of the requested type, if present in the binding stack. (Overrides BindingElement.GetProperty<T>(BindingContext).)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
The Discovery client channel is used by creating a custom binding element and adding a to the top of the binding stack. For more information about the Discovery client channel, see Using the Discovery Client Channel.
