ExceptionHandler.TransportExceptionHandler Property

Gets or sets the current transport ExceptionHandler implementation for the application domain.

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

public static ExceptionHandler TransportExceptionHandler { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.ServiceModel.Dispatcher.ExceptionHandler
A custom ExceptionHandler object that receives unhandled exceptions that occur within the global Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) transports.

By default, the TransportExceptionHandler property is set to the value of AlwaysHandle, causing unhandled exceptions within WCF transports to be ignored. Set this property to an instance of ExceptionHandler to receive and react to these exceptions.

If an unhandled exception occurs within a global WCF transport and reaches this handler, there is a possibility that the state of the application domain is compromised. HandleException can return false for these exceptions to cause the application to be terminated.
