ExecutionContext.GetObjectData Method

Sets the specified SerializationInfo object with the logical context information needed to recreate an instance of the current execution context.

Namespace: System.Threading
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public void GetObjectData (
	SerializationInfo info,
	StreamingContext context
public final void GetObjectData (
	SerializationInfo info, 
	StreamingContext context
public final function GetObjectData (
	info : SerializationInfo, 
	context : StreamingContext
Not applicable.



The SerializationInfo object to be populated with serialization information.


The StreamingContext structure representing the destination context of the serialization.

Exception typeCondition


info is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

GetObjectData sets a SerializationInfo with the logical call context information. During deserialization, the execution context object is reconstituted from the SerializationInfo transmitted over the stream.

For more information, see SerializationInfo.

The following code example shows the use of the GetObjectData method. This example is part of a larger example provided for the ExecutionContext class.

SerializationInfo sI = new SerializationInfo(
    new FormatterConverter());

    new StreamingContext(StreamingContextStates.All));

LogicalCallContext lCC = (LogicalCallContext)sI.GetValue(

// The logical call context object should contain the previously
// created call context.
Console.WriteLine("Is the logical call context information " +
    "available? " + lCC.HasInfo);
