CloudQueue Constructor

Updated: September 27, 2013

[This topic is part of the Microsoft Azure Storage Client Library 1.7, which has been deprecated. See Storage Client Library for the latest version.]

Initializes a new instance of the CloudQueue class.

Namespace: Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient
Assembly: Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient (in Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient.dll)

Dim address As String
Dim credentials As StorageCredentials

Dim instance As New CloudQueue(address, credentials)

public CloudQueue (
	string address,
	StorageCredentials credentials



Type: System.String

The absolute URI to the queue.


Type: Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageCredentials

The account credentials.

The following code example uses the CloudQueue constructor to create a queue:

  public CloudQueue CreateNewQueue(string queueAbsoluteURI, string AccountName, string AccessKey )
    StorageCredentialsAccountAndKey credentials;
    CloudQueue newQueue = null;
      credentials = new StorageCredentialsAccountAndKey( AccountName, AccessKey );
      newQueue = new CloudQueue( queueAbsoluteURI, credentials );
      newQueue.Create( );
    catch( Exception ex )
      Trace.TraceError( string.Format( 
        "Failed to create new CloudQueue at URI '{0}'; reason: {1}.",
          queueAbsoluteURI, ex.Message ) );
      return ( null );
    return ( newQueue );

See the GetQueueReference method for an alternate way to create a new CloudQueue object.
