OperationContext Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the OperationContext class that uses the specified IContextChannel in a client application.

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

public OperationContext(
	IContextChannel channel
)

Parameters

channel
Type: System.ServiceModel.IContextChannel

The IContextChannel used to create a new client OperationContext.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

The channel is null.

Use the OperationContext constructor to create a new operation context within the scope of which the proxy is associated in order to modify outbound items such as headers.

The following example shows how to use the OperationContextScope to create a new context in a client application in order to add a custom header to the outgoing message.

SampleServiceClient wcfClient = new SampleServiceClient(new InstanceContext(this));
try
{
  using (OperationContextScope scope = new OperationContextScope(wcfClient.InnerChannel))
  {
    MessageHeader header
      = MessageHeader.CreateHeader(
      "Service-Bound-CustomHeader",
      "http://Microsoft.WCF.Documentation",
      "Custom Happy Value."
      );
    OperationContext.Current.OutgoingMessageHeaders.Add(header);

    // Making calls.
    Console.WriteLine("Enter the greeting to send: ");
    string greeting = Console.ReadLine();

    //Console.ReadLine();
    header = MessageHeader.CreateHeader(
        "Service-Bound-OneWayHeader",
        "http://Microsoft.WCF.Documentation",
        "Different Happy Value."
      );
    OperationContext.Current.OutgoingMessageHeaders.Add(header);

    // One-way
    wcfClient.Push(greeting);
    this.wait.WaitOne();

    // Done with service. 
    wcfClient.Close();
    Console.WriteLine("Done!");
    Console.ReadLine();
  }
}
catch (TimeoutException timeProblem)
{
  Console.WriteLine("The service operation timed out. " + timeProblem.Message);
  Console.ReadLine();
  wcfClient.Abort();
}
catch (CommunicationException commProblem)
{
  Console.WriteLine("There was a communication problem. " + commProblem.Message);
  Console.ReadLine();
  wcfClient.Abort();
}
