MessagePropertyFilter.UseTracing Property


Gets or sets a value that indicates whether to retrieve Message.UseTracing property information when receiving or peeking a message.

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

public bool UseTracing { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

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

The UseTracing property of the Message class specifies whether to track the route of a message as it moves toward its destination queue. If true, each time the original message passes through a Message Queuing routing server, a Message Queuing-generated report message is sent to the system report queue.

Using tracing involves setting up Active Directory and specifying a report queue for the Message Queuing enterprise. These settings are configured by the administrator.

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

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