I'm using WCF and want to upload a large file from the client to the server. I have investigated and decided to follow the chunking approach outlined at However, this approach (just like streaming) restricts the contract to limited method signitures: [OperationContract(IsOneWay=true)] [ChunkingBehavior(ChunkingAppliesTo.InMessage)] void UploadStream(Stream stream); The sample uses the rather convenient example of uploading a file from a fixed path and saving it to a fixed path on the server. Therefore, my question is how do I pass additional parameters to specify things like filename, filepath etc.
I would like something like: [OperationContract(IsOneWay=true)] [ChunkingBehavior(ChunkingAppliesTo.InMessage)] void UploadStream(Stream stream, String filePath); Thanks in advance, Mark. Explains how to use the MessageHeader attribute to force things to be passed in the header, and therefore not count as a parameter. So, instead of passing a stream and other meta data, create a class that has the attribute MessageContract and mark all of the meta data as a MessageHeader. Then, mark the stream as a MessageBodyMember (which the article incorrect calls 'MessageBody'). Have your UploadStream method take a single parameter whose type is that of the MessageContract class you've just created. I've done this successfully, but I haven't done it in tandem with chunking.
You could make your service session-ful and have an initialization method in the contract with the IsInitiating property set to true. Something like: [OperationContract(IsInitiating = true)] void InitializeUploadService(string filename); [OperationContract(IsOneWay = true, IsInitiating = false)] [ChunkingBehavior(ChunkingAppliesTo.InMessage)] void UploadStream(Stream stream); I have never tried it with streaming services but it should basically make WCF enforce that InitializeUploadService is always called before UploadStream.
