DefaultSettingsSection Class

Represents an XML section in a configuration file that contains default values of a transaction. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace:  System.Transactions.Configuration
Assembly:  System.Transactions (in System.Transactions.dll)

public sealed class DefaultSettingsSection : ConfigurationSection

An example configuration file used by your transaction application can be as follows,

<configuration>

    <system.transactions>

        <defaultSettings distributedTransactionManagerName="F04M25" timeout="02:00:00"/>

        <machineSettings maxTimeout="02:00:00"/>      

    </system.transactions>

</configuration>

This example specifies the default values of a transaction. Specifically, it sets the the computer name of the Distributed Transaction Coordinator (MSDTC) that is responsible for coordinating all distributed transactions started locally, and the default time after which a transaction times out. In addition, it specifies a setting that can only be modified at the machine level, which is the maximum amount of time allowed before a transaction times out.
