MessageQueue.EndReceive(IAsyncResult) Method

Definition

Completes the specified asynchronous receive operation.

public:
 System::Messaging::Message ^ EndReceive(IAsyncResult ^ asyncResult);
public System.Messaging.Message EndReceive (IAsyncResult asyncResult);
member this.EndReceive : IAsyncResult -> System.Messaging.Message
Public Function EndReceive (asyncResult As IAsyncResult) As Message

Parameters

asyncResult
IAsyncResult

The IAsyncResult that identifies the asynchronous receive operation to finish and from which to retrieve an end result.

Returns

The Message associated with the completed asynchronous operation.

Exceptions

The asyncResult parameter is null.

The syntax of the asyncResult parameter is not valid.

An error occurred when accessing a Message Queuing method.

Examples

The following code example chains asynchronous requests. It assumes there is a queue on the local computer called "myQueue". The Main function begins the asynchronous operation that is handled by the MyReceiveCompleted routine. MyReceiveCompleted processes the current message and begins a new asynchronous receive operation.

Remarks

When the ReceiveCompleted event is raised, EndReceive(IAsyncResult) completes the operation that was initiated by the BeginReceive call. To do so, EndReceive(IAsyncResult) receives the message.

BeginReceive can specify a time-out, which causes the ReceiveCompleted event to be raised if the time-out occurs before a message appears in the queue. When a time-out occurs without a message arriving in the queue, a subsequent call to EndReceive(IAsyncResult) throws an exception.

EndReceive(IAsyncResult) is used to read (removing from the queue) the message that caused the ReceiveCompleted event to be raised.

If you want to continue to asynchronously receive messages, you can again call BeginReceive after calling EndReceive(IAsyncResult).
