The following code example demonstrates the use of MessageQueuePermissionAttribute.

using System.Messaging;

        // Demonstrate the members of MessageQueuePermissionAttribute. 
        // Note that the Path, FormatName, MachineName, Label, and Category 
        // property values cannot all be set on the same instance of 
        // MessageQueuePermissionAttribute. Trying to do so will throw an 
        // exception of type System.InvalidOperationException.
