public bool TransactionStatusQueue { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

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

The TransactionStatusQueue property of the Message class identifies the transaction status queue on the source computer. The property is used for sending acknowledgment messages back to the sending application. The transaction status queue is used by connector applications when receiving transactional messages sent to a foreign queue.

A foreign queue exists in a queuing system other than Microsoft Message Queuing. Microsoft Message Queuing communicates with such queues through a connector application.

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

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