WIF: whr parameter is a hint for user Home Realm

Yesterday i was reading the Claims Based Identity & Access Control Guide and learned that the whr parameter is a hint from the application to the STS about the user’s STS. So if i look back at the code in WIF: Change STS per request i should not hardcode the HomeRealm parameter to timvw but use the company name instead.

string GetRedirectUrl(string company, string companySts, string realm, string returnUrl)
	var signInRequestMessage = new SignInRequestMessage(new Uri(companySts), realm)
	Context = returnUrl,
	HomeRealm = company

	return signInRequestMessage.WriteQueryString();
