Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true to receive Message.DestinationQueue information; otherwise, false. The default is false.

The DestinationQueue property of the Message class identifies the original destination queue of the message. It is typically used to determine the original destination of a message that is in a journal or dead-letter queue. It can also be used when sending a response message back to a response queue.

The following code example demonstrates the use of the DestinationQueue property.

// Set the queue's MessageReadPropertyFilter property to enable the
// message's DestinationQueue property.
queue.MessageReadPropertyFilter.DestinationQueue = true;

// Peek at the message. Time out after ten seconds in case the message
// was not delivered.
orderMessage = queue.Peek(TimeSpan.FromSeconds(10.0)); 

// Display the value of the message's DestinationQueue.QueueName
// property.
Console.WriteLine("Message.DestinationQueue.QueueName: {0}",
