TransactedBatchingBehavior Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the TransactedBatchingBehavior class with the specified batch size.

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

public TransactedBatchingBehavior(
	int maxBatchSize


Type: System.Int32

The maximum number of receive operations that can be batched together.


MaxBatchSize is less than 0.

The maxBatchSize value passed into the constructor is only a hint. It is possible that all messages are received before reaching the maxBatchSize. When that occurs, it is unnecessary to wait indefinitely for another message to be received. To prevent this from happening, WCF commits the batch early and open a new batch to receive additional messages. The batch is committed if there are no messages to be received and 20 percent of the transaction time-out value has elapsed.

The following code shows how to create a new instance of TransactedBatchingBehavior specifying the maximum number of messages to be processed in a batch.

endpoint.Behaviors.Add(new TransactedBatchingBehavior(10));
