System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.BinaryServerFormatterSink Class

Provides the implementation for a server formatter sink that uses the System.Runtime.Serialization.Formatters.Binary.BinaryFormatter.

public class BinaryServerFormatterSink : 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(IServerChannelSinkProvider, IChannelReceiver) 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.


Specifies whether the formatter will include versioning information. Values true or false.


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.


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 [<topic://cpconAutomaticDeserializationInNETRemoting>].

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.
