OperationContext.Current Property

Gets or sets the execution context for the current thread.

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

public static OperationContext Current { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.ServiceModel.OperationContext
The OperationContext that represents the messaging and execution context of the current method.

Use the Current property to obtain the execution and message context for the current method.

The following code example uses the Current property and GetCallbackChannel<T> method to create a channel back to the caller from within a method. All methods in this example are one-way methods, enabling the service and the client to communicate in both directions independently. In this case, the example client application expects only one return call before it exits, but another client, for example a Windows Forms client, can receive any number of calls from the service.

using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ServiceModel;
using System.Threading;

namespace Microsoft.WCF.Documentation
{
  [ServiceContract(
    Name = "SampleDuplexHello",
    Namespace = "http://microsoft.wcf.documentation",
    CallbackContract = typeof(IHelloCallbackContract),
    SessionMode = SessionMode.Required
  )]
  public interface IDuplexHello
  {
    [OperationContract(IsOneWay = true)]
    void Hello(string greeting);
  }

  public interface IHelloCallbackContract
  {
    [OperationContract(IsOneWay = true)]
    void Reply(string responseToGreeting);
  }

  public class DuplexHello : IDuplexHello
  {
    public DuplexHello()
    {
      Console.WriteLine("Service object created: " + this.GetHashCode().ToString());
    }

    ~DuplexHello()
    {
      Console.WriteLine("Service object destroyed: " + this.GetHashCode().ToString());
    }

    public void Hello(string greeting)
    {
      Console.WriteLine("Caller sent: " + greeting);
      Console.WriteLine("Session ID: " + OperationContext.Current.SessionId);
      Console.WriteLine("Waiting two seconds before returning call.");
      // Put a slight delay to demonstrate asynchronous behavior on client.
      Thread.Sleep(2000);
      IHelloCallbackContract callerProxy
        = OperationContext.Current.GetCallbackChannel<IHelloCallbackContract>();
      string response = "Service object " + this.GetHashCode().ToString() + " received: " + greeting;
      Console.WriteLine("Sending back: " + response);
      callerProxy.Reply(response);
    }
  }
}
