DbConnection.EnlistTransaction Method

Enlists in the specified transaction.

Namespace:  System.Data.Common
Assembly:  System.Data (in System.Data.dll)

public virtual void EnlistTransaction(
	Transaction transaction
)

Parameters

transaction
Type: System.Transactions.Transaction

A reference to an existing Transaction in which to enlist.

New in ADO.NET 2.0 is support for using the EnlistTransaction method to enlist in a distributed transaction. Because it enlists a connection in a Transaction instance, EnlistTransaction takes advantage of functionality available in the System.Transactions namespace for managing distributed transactions. Once a connection is explicitly enlisted in a transaction, it cannot be unenlisted or enlisted in another transaction until the first transaction finishes.
