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

Gets or sets a value that specifies whether to use the current synchronization context to choose the thread of execution.

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

member UseSynchronizationContext : bool with get, set

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if all calls to the service must run on the thread specified by the SynchronizationContext; otherwise, false. The default value is true.

Use this property to provide the user interface thread affinity that some applications require. For example, a Windows Forms application may be registered as a singleton service object. In this case, all calls into the service must run on the Windows Forms thread. The default case, in which UseSynchronizationContext is set to true, synchronizes all calls to the service to run on the thread captured from the System.Threading.SynchronizationContext.
