IInstanceContextInitializer Interface


Defines the methods necessary to inspect or modify the creation of InstanceContext objects when required.

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

public interface IInstanceContextInitializer

System_CAPS_pubmethodInitialize(InstanceContext, Message)

Provides the ability to modify the newly created InstanceContext object.

To inspect or modify InstanceContext objects when they are created, implement the IInstanceContextInitializer interface and use an IContractBehavior to add it to the InstanceContextInitializers property.

There can be any number of context initializers for a service. Typically, the IInstanceContextInitializer is added to attach an extension to the InstanceContext object as a mechanism for passing data throughout an application.

If you want to participate in providing or selecting the InstanceContext object that processes a message, see System.ServiceModel.Dispatcher.IInstanceContextProvider.
