    Are limits for methods names?

    You can name it as you need. However, you need to make sure that you use the same method name on client side code where you are sending messages, code might be similar like:

    var chat = $.connection.chatHub;

    It has been observed, but the code does not work. With shorter name work it properly (tested with names "net" and "web").

    After many attempts, I found that the problem occurs when the name contains uppercase.

    In SignalR, Always create method in "Camel-casing of method names"

    e.g :-

    public class ContosoChatHub : Hub
        public void NewContosoChatMessage(string name, string message)
            Clients.All.addNewMessageToPage(name, message);
    JavaScript client using generated proxy
    contosoChatHubProxy.client.addNewMessageToPage = function (name, message) {
        // Add the message to the page. 
        $('#discussion').append('<li><strong>' + htmlEncode(name)
            + '</strong>: ' + htmlEncode(message) + '<li>');

    Lower-CamelCase? With the first character lowercase?

    Hi hlucheucho,

    Lower-CamelCase? With the first character lowercase?

    Yes, after you rename Send method to SendToNetApp in your hub class, please make sure that the first char of method name is lowercase when you call this method from your JavaScript client.


    Otherwise, it will return the error: Object doesn't support property or method 'SendToNetApp'.

    Best regards,
