InstanceContextIdleCallback Delegate

Represents the method that is called when an System.ServiceModel.InstanceContext object has finished processing.

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

public delegate void InstanceContextIdleCallback(
	InstanceContext instanceContext


Type: System.ServiceModel.InstanceContext

The instance context that has finished processing.

Use an InstanceContextIdleCallback to notify the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) runtime that an InstanceContextIdleCallback object has finished processing. When the InstanceContextIdleCallback object notifies the runtime that the InstanceContextIdleCallback has finished its work, WCF calls IInstanceContextProvider.IsIdle once again. This cycle continues until IInstanceContextProvider.IsIdle returns true and the context is closed and recycled.

For more information, see NotifyIdle.
