  NameDescription
Public methodEqualsInfrastructure. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public methodGetHashCodeReturns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodIsDefaultAttributeWhen overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class. (Inherited from Attribute.)

  NameDescription
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method_Attribute.GetIDsOfNamesMaps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method_Attribute.GetTypeInfoRetrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method_Attribute.GetTypeInfoCountRetrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1). (Inherited from Attribute.)

If a transaction type is specified with this attribute, it must not be changed in the COM+ catalog. If the transaction type is changed in the COM+ catalog, the same transaction type must be specified on the component with this attribute.

For more information about using attributes, see Extending Metadata Using Attributes.

The following code example demonstrates the use of the TransactionAttribute to mark a ServicedComponent as transactional.

[Transaction]
public class TransactionalComponent : ServicedComponent
{

    public void TransactionalMethod (string data)
    {

      ContextUtil.DeactivateOnReturn = true;
      ContextUtil.MyTransactionVote = TransactionVote.Abort;

      // Do work with data. Return if any errors occur. 

      // Vote to commit. If any errors occur, this code will not execute.
      ContextUtil.MyTransactionVote = TransactionVote.Commit;

    }

}
