Setting WCF binding ReaderQuotas maxStringContentLength with a client generated by code.

I do not know how to create a WCF client in code with CustomBinding that has readerQuotas changed to larger value... I have attached a code snippet to show what I am trying to do. When I try to build the project, it says that the readerQuotas property is read-only. I have to create the client with code, I have to provide an assembly that does not need any .config files and has everything included in the assembly.

Can anyone help and give a working code sample ???
CustomBinding custBind = new CustomBinding();
BindingElementCollection bindElemColl = newBindingElementCollection();                
BinaryMessageEncodingBindingElement bindElem = new BinaryMessageEncodingBindingElement();
bindElem.MaxReadPoolSize = 64;
bindElem.MaxWritePoolSize = 16;
bindElem.MaxSessionSize = 2048;
XmlDictionaryReaderQuotas readerQuotas = new XmlDictionaryReaderQuotas();
readerQuotas.MaxDepth = 32;
readerQuotas.MaxStringContentLength = largeValue;
readerQuotas.MaxArrayLength = 16384;
readerQuotas.MaxBytesPerRead = 4096;
readerQuotas.MaxNameTableCharCount = 16384;
bindElemColl.ReaderQuotas = readerQuotas;
LAST LINE GIVES ERROR: Error	5	Property or indexer 'System.ServiceModel.Channels.BinaryMessageEncodingBindingElement.ReaderQuotas' cannot be assigned to -- it is read only

Create any Binding Derivatives and pass that when creating CustomBinding instance.

XmlDictionaryReaderQuotas readerQuotas = new XmlDictionaryReaderQuotas();
readerQuotas.MaxDepth = 32;
readerQuotas.MaxStringContentLength = largeValue;
readerQuotas.MaxArrayLength = 16384;
readerQuotas.MaxBytesPerRead = 4096;
readerQuotas.MaxNameTableCharCount = 16384;

BasicHttpBinding httpBind = new BasicHttpBinding();
httpBind.ReaderQuotas = readerQuotas ;

CustomBinding newCB = new CustomBinding(httpBind);

ReaderQuotas for BinaryMessageEncodingBindingElement object is Read only thats why you are getting this error.

What ever you are assigning for ReaderQuotas are the default values of BinaryMessageEncodingBindingElement object. So no need to set them once again explicitly.

To Apeter: I do need to set them explicitly, that was just a sample code, and it also had variable largeValue for maxStringlength property that I really do need to set manually. I know that the property is read-only, thats what it says in the error message ! Is there any other way of accomplishing to set the maxStringLength for readerQuotas manually ?

Using a .config file, you can use the following:
      <customBinding>
        <binding name="soap11BasicHttpBinding" closeTimeout="00:01:00"
            openTimeout="00:01:00" receiveTimeout="00:01:00" sendTimeout="00:01:00">
          <textMessageEncoding messageVersion="Soap11">
            <readerQuotas maxDepth="32" maxStringContentLength="5242880"
                maxArrayLength="5242880" maxBytesPerRead="4096" maxNameTableCharCount="5242880" />
          </textMessageEncoding>
          <httpTransport maxBufferPoolSize="5242880" maxReceivedMessageSize="5242880" maxBufferSize="5242880" />
        </binding>
      </customBinding>
