public string ServiceUri { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String

The role service URI.

Exception Condition

When getting this property, no service URI was found in the application configuration file, and this property has not been previously set.

You can set the ServiceUri property in your application code, but you will typically set the value in your application configuration file. This enables you to change the service location without recompiling your code. For more information, see How to: Configure Client Application Services.
