An initializer function is used to ensure that functions are executed on the same instance only once. This topic describes the basic structure and features of C# initializer functions.
Function Compute provides the
Init method to initialize instances. The
Init method is automatically called when an instance starts in the background. The Init
method is called only once for each instance.
The following code defines the
Init method of a simple initializer function. For more information about initializer functions,
see Initializer function.
public void Init(); //No context object is contained. public void Init(IFcContext context); //The context object is contained. public static void Init(); //No context object is contained. public static void Init(IFcContext context); //The context object is contained.
The function name
MyInitializer must correspond to the
initializer field that you specify when you create an initializer function. For example, if you
initializer handler field to
fcdotnetsample::fcdotnetsample.TestHandler::MyInitializer when you create an initializer function, the
MyInitializer function that is defined in the
fcdotnetsample.TestHandler file is regarded as the initializer function. After the configuration is complete,
Function Compute loads the MyInitializer function as the initializer function.
InitializationTimeoutfields that are contained in
IFcContextare designed for initializer functions. If these two fields are not specified, the initializer function is not executed.
- Initializer functions return no values. Return logic that is appended to initializer functions does not take effect.
