ServiceBehaviorAttribute.UseSynchronizationContext Property


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

 property bool UseSynchronizationContext { bool get(); void set(bool value); };
public bool UseSynchronizationContext { get; set; }
member this.UseSynchronizationContext : bool with get, set
Public Property UseSynchronizationContext As Boolean

Property Value

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.
