TransactionScope Constructor (TransactionScopeOption, TransactionOptions)

Initializes a new instance of the TransactionScope class with the specified requirements.

Namespace:  System.Transactions
Assembly:  System.Transactions (in System.Transactions.dll)

public TransactionScope(
	TransactionScopeOption scopeOption,
	TransactionOptions transactionOptions


Type: System.Transactions.TransactionScopeOption
An instance of the TransactionScopeOption enumeration that describes the transaction requirements associated with this transaction scope.
Type: System.Transactions.TransactionOptions
A TransactionOptions structure that describes the transaction options to use if a new transaction is created. If an existing transaction is used, the timeout value in this parameter applies to the transaction scope. If that time expires before the scope is disposed, the transaction is aborted.

When you use the transactionOptions parameter to specify an IsolationLevel, and the scope creates a transaction later, the new transaction is associated with the specified isolation level. If an isolation level is passed in together with a transaction, the transaction must have an identical isolation level, or an exception is thrown.
