Type: System.ServiceModel.MsmqIntegration.MsmqMessageSerializationFormat

A MsmqMessageSerializationFormat object that represents the type of serialization to use.

This property returns an enumeration value that specifies how a WCF message will be serialized and deserialized. For more information, see MsmqMessageSerializationFormat.

The following code illustrates how to set the serialization format on an instance of the MsmqIntegrationBinding class:

// Create the purchase order.
PurchaseOrder po = new PurchaseOrder();
po.customerId = "";
po.poNumber = Guid.NewGuid().ToString();

PurchaseOrderLineItem lineItem1 = new PurchaseOrderLineItem();
lineItem1.productId = "Blue Widget";
lineItem1.quantity = 54;
lineItem1.unitCost = 29.99F;

PurchaseOrderLineItem lineItem2 = new PurchaseOrderLineItem();
lineItem2.productId = "Red Widget";
lineItem2.quantity = 890;
lineItem2.unitCost = 45.89F;

po.orderLineItems = new PurchaseOrderLineItem[2];
po.orderLineItems[0] = lineItem1;
po.orderLineItems[1] = lineItem2;

OrderProcessorClient client = new OrderProcessorClient("OrderResponseEndpoint");
MsmqMessage<PurchaseOrder> ordermsg = new MsmqMessage<PurchaseOrder>(po);
using (TransactionScope scope = new TransactionScope(TransactionScopeOption.Required))

Console.WriteLine("Order has been submitted:{0}", po);

//Closing the client gracefully closes the connection and cleans up resources.

Console.WriteLine("Press <ENTER> to terminate client.");
