The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Called before client calls are sent and after service responses are returned.

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

abstract BeforeCall : 
        operationName:string *
        inputs:Object[] -> Object


Type: System.String

The name of the operation.

Type: System.Object[]

The objects passed to the method by the client.

Return Value

Type: System.Object

The correlation state that is returned as the correlationState parameter in AfterCall. Return null if you do not intend to use correlation state.

On outbound calls from a client, the inspector is invoked before the request contents are serialized and sent to the service. The inspector is also called after the response has been deserialized but before the return values have been dispatched to the proxy method.

On inbound calls to a service, the inspector is invoked after the request contents are deserialized and dispatched to the service operation and before the response contents are serialized and sent to the client.

The following code example shows an IParameterInspector implementation that:

  • Writes the operation name and return value to the console after a response has been deserialized by the service or a request has been serialized by a client.

  • Writes the operation name to the console after deserializing a response on the client or after a response is serialized on the service.
