BinaryServerFormatterSink Class


Provides the implementation for a server formatter sink that uses the BinaryFormatter.

public ref class BinaryServerFormatterSink : System::Runtime::Remoting::Channels::IServerChannelSink
public class BinaryServerFormatterSink : System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.IServerChannelSink
type BinaryServerFormatterSink = class
    interface IServerChannelSink
    interface IChannelSinkBase
Public Class BinaryServerFormatterSink
Implements IServerChannelSink


The request stream propagates from the server transport sink through the server channel sinks until it reaches the appropriate formatter sink. The formatter sink deserializes the message and passes it through the pipeline. A special dispatch sink is inserted at the end of the channel sink chain by the ChannelServices.CreateServerChannelSinkChain method, which is called by server channels to create the server channel sink chains. When the message reaches the dispatch sink, the dispatch sink passes the message to the remoting infrastructure.

The following table shows the sink configuration properties that can be specified for the current sink provider.

Property Description
includeVersions Specifies whether the formatter will include versioning information. Values true or false.
strictBinding Indicates that a receiving formatter will first try to identify the type using complete version information if it exists before using only the type name and assembly name without version information. Values true or false. The default for both system-provided formatters is false.
typeFilterLevel A string value that specifies the level of automatic deserialization that a server channel attempts. Supported values are Low (the default) and Full. For details about deserialization levels, see Automatic Deserialization in .NET Framework Remoting.

This property is supported only by the .NET Framework version 1.1 on the following platforms: Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0, Windows Millennium Edition, Windows 2000, Windows XP Home Edition, Windows XP Professional, and Windows Server 2003 family.


Using an instance of this object with untrusted data or across an unsecure channel is a security risk. Use this object only with trusted data and across a secure channel. For more information, see Validate All Inputs.


BinaryServerFormatterSink(BinaryServerFormatterSink+Protocol, IServerChannelSink, IChannelReceiver)

Initializes a new instance of the BinaryServerFormatterSink class.



Gets the next IServerChannelSink in the sink chain.


Gets a IDictionary of properties for the current channel sink.


Gets or sets the TypeFilterLevel value of automatic deserialization that the BinaryServerFormatterSink performs.

Requests processing of the response from a method call that is sent asynchronously.


Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.

(Inherited from Object)

Serves as the default hash function.
