Specifies a reliability contract.
Public Enumeration Consistency
Member name Description MayCorruptAppDomain In the face of exceptional conditions, the common language runtime (CLR) makes no guarantees regarding state consistency in the current application domain. MayCorruptInstance In the face of exceptional conditions, the method is guaranteed to limit state corruption to the current instance. MayCorruptProcess In the face of exceptional conditions, the CLR makes no guarantees regarding state consistency; that is, the condition might corrupt the process. WillNotCorruptState In the face of exceptional conditions, the method is guaranteed not to corrupt state.
This does not guarantee that the method will never fail; however, it does guarantee that such a failure will never corrupt state.
enumeration is used as a parameter to the Consistency attribute to specify the reliability guarantee on a given method. ReliabilityContractAttribute
The following code example demonstrates the use of the
enumeration when specifying a constrained execution region for a method. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the Consistency constructor. ReliabilityContractAttribute
consistentLevel2 = False
If depth = 2 Then Thread.Sleep(-1)
