TransactionFlowBindingElement Class

Represents the configuration element that specifies transaction flow support for a binding. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace:  System.ServiceModel.Channels
Assembly:  System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)

public ref class TransactionFlowBindingElement sealed : public BindingElement, 

This element allows you to enable or disable incoming transaction flow in an endpoint’s binding settings, as well as to specify the desired protocol format for incoming transactions.

Caution noteCaution:

When using the OleTransactions protocol to flow transactions from endpoint to endpoint, the transaction timeout can be lost if the destination endpoint attempts to flow again using any protocol other than OleTransactions. This can cause all down-level nodes after the OleTransactions hop to timeout later than expected.
