Consistency Enumeration

 

Specifies a reliability contract.

Namespace:   System.Runtime.ConstrainedExecution
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[SerializableAttribute]
public enum Consistency

Member nameDescription
MayCorruptAppDomain

In the face of exceptional conditions, the common language runtime (CLR) makes no guarantees regarding state consistency in the current application domain.

MayCorruptInstance

In the face of exceptional conditions, the method is guaranteed to limit state corruption to the current instance.

MayCorruptProcess

In the face of exceptional conditions, the CLR makes no guarantees regarding state consistency; that is, the condition might corrupt the process.

WillNotCorruptState

In the face of exceptional conditions, the method is guaranteed not to corrupt state.

The Consistency enumeration is used as a parameter to the ReliabilityContractAttribute attribute to specify the reliability guarantee on a given method.

The following code example demonstrates the use of the Consistency enumeration when specifying a constrained execution region for a method. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the ReliabilityContractAttribute constructor.

[ReliabilityContract(Consistency.WillNotCorruptState, Cer.Success)]
[MethodImpl(MethodImplOptions.NoInlining)]
void StackDepth2()
{
    try
    {
        consistentLevel2 = false;
        if (depth == 2)
            Thread.Sleep(-1);
        StackDepth3();
    }
    finally
    {
        consistentLevel2 = true;
    }
}
