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

public short BasePriority { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int16

The single base priority for all messages sent to the public queue. The default is zero (0).

The BasePriority is used for routing the queue's messages over the network. Use the BasePriority to give the messages sent to the queue a higher or lower priority than that for messages sent to other queues. When a queue's base priority is set, all the messages sent to it are given a higher priority than that of the messages sent to queues with a lower base priority. The queue's base priority has no effect on the order of the messages in the queue or on how messages are read from the queue.

The BasePriority applies only to public queues that are accessed through the domain controller (in other words, using the public format name). The base priority of private queues and of directly accessed public queues is always zero.
