Message.Id Message.Id Message.Id Message.Id Property

Definition

Gets the message's identifier.

public:
 property System::String ^ Id { System::String ^ get(); };
[System.Messaging.MessagingDescription("MsgId")]
public string Id { get; }
member this.Id : string
Public ReadOnly Property Id As String

Property Value

The message's unique identifier, which is generated by Message Queuing.

Exceptions

The message has not been sent. This property can only be read on messages retrieved from a queue.

-or-

The message queue is filtered to ignore the Id property.

Examples

The following code example sends and receives a message containing an order to and from a queue. It specifically requests a positive acknowledgment when the original message reaches or is retrieved from the queue.

Remarks

Message Queuing generates a message identifier when the message is sent. The identifier is composed of 20 bytes and includes two items: the machine Guid of the sending computer and a unique identifier for the message on the computer. The combination of the two items produces a message identifier that is unique on the network.

Message Queuing generates message identifiers for all messages - including acknowledgment and report messages. An acknowledgment message is generally sent by Message Queuing in reaction to the arrival or failure of an original, sent message. You can find the Id property value of the original message in the CorrelationId property of an acknowledgment message.

You can also use the Id property when sending a response message to a response queue. To include the identifier of the original message in a response message, set the CorrelationId property of the response message to the Id property of the original message. The application reading the response message can then use the correlation identifier of the response message to identify the original message.
