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

// Set the queue's MessageReadPropertyFilter property to enable the
// message's DigitalSignature property.
queue.MessageReadPropertyFilter.DigitalSignature = 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 DigitalSignature property.
Console.WriteLine("Message.DigitalSignature: {0}",
