Property Value

true if this MessageQueue has exclusive rights to receive messages from the queue; otherwise, false. The default is false.


DenySharedReceive specifies the shared mode of the queue referenced by this MessageQueue. Set DenySharedReceive to true to indicate that only this MessageQueue should have access to peek or receive messages from the queue with the specified Path. If another MessageQueue or another application is associated with the same queue resource, that instance or application will not be able to peek or receive messages, but it can still send them.

If DenySharedReceive is false, the queue is available to multiple applications for sending, peeking, or receiving messages.
