ChannelDispatcher.ManualAddressing Property


Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the channel dispatcher adds addressing headers to request-reply messages.

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

public bool ManualAddressing { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the proxy does not add any addressing headers; otherwise, false. The default is false. See Remarks.

Exception Condition

The communication object is in an Opening or Opened state.


The communication object is in a Closing or Closed state.


The communication object is in a Faulted state.

This property can only be set when the instance of the ChannelDispatcher is in the Created state, as this is the only state that is both mutable and not disposed.

Set the ManualAddressing property to true if you want to prevent the client from adding Message ID and ReplyTo addressing headers to request/response messages so that your application can control these headers.

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

    new WSHttpBinding(),


IChannelListener icl = serviceHost.ChannelDispatchers[0].Listener;
ChannelDispatcher dispatcher = new ChannelDispatcher(icl);

bool isManualAddressing = dispatcher.ManualAddressing;
