Connect WCF Service by an additional Binding Type in WPF OLAPCommon

31 Oct 20223 minutes to read

OLAP Silverlight controls can be bound to BasicHttpBinding support.


Incorrect specification of endpoint address will lead to Initialize Component Error. The endpoint address should be set with respect to the type of bindings.

Use case Scenario

User can create Web service using the BasicHttpBinding feature and bind the service to OLAP Silverlight controls.


The following are steps to create a BasicHttpBinding:

Include the Basic HTTP Binding and Service endpoint address in the Web.Config file as given in the following code:

  • XAML
  • <!--<Bindings>-->
    <binding name="binaryHttpBinding" maxBufferSize="2147483647" 
    <readerQuotas maxDepth="2147483647"/>
    <security mode="None" />
    <!--<Endpoint Address>-->
    <service behaviorConfiguration="Services.OlapManagerBehavior" name="Services.OlapManager">
    <endpoint address="basic" binding="basicHttpBinding"      
    contract="Syncfusion.OlapSilverlight.Manager.IOlapDataProvider" />

    Instantiate the WCF service using Basic HTTP Binding and End Point Address values:

    • Declare the IOlapDataProvider for Service instantiation as given in the following code:

    • C#
    • // Declaring the IOlapDataProvider for service instantiation
      IOlapDataProvider DataProvider = null;
    • VBNET
    • ' Declaring the IOlapDataProvider for service instantiation
      Dim DataProvider As IOlapDataProvider = Nothing
    • Specify the basicHttpBinding and Instantiate the DataProvider from the ChannelFactory as given in the following code:

      private void InitializeConnection()
      Binding basicHttpBinding = new BasicHttpBinding(BasicHttpSecurityMode.None)             
      { MaxBufferSize = 2147483647, MaxReceivedMessageSize = 2147483647 };
      var Uri = App.Current.Host.Source.ToString();
      ////Address for Basic HTTP binding in corresponding Web configuration file
      EndpointAddress address = new EndpointAddress (new Uri (Uri +  
      ChannelFactory<IOlapDataProvider> clientChannel = new 
      ChannelFactory<IOlapDataProvider>(basicHttpBinding, address);
      DataProvider = clientChannel.CreateChannel();
      Private Sub InitializeConnection()
      Dim basicHttpBinding As System.ServiceModel.Channels.Binding = New BasicHttpBinding (BasicHttpSecurityMode.None With {.MaxReceivedMessageSize = 2147483647})
        'Address for Basic HTTP binding in corresponding Web configuration file
      Dim address As EndpointAddress = New EndpointAddress (New 
      Uri(App.Current.Host.Source & "../../../../OlapManager.svc/basic"))
      Dim clientChannel As ChannelFactory(Of IOlapDataProvider) = New ChannelFactory(Of IOlapDataProvider)(basicHttpBinding, address)
      DataProvider = clientChannel.CreateChannel()
      End Sub
