Remarks

This overload of GetMessageQueueEnumerator returns an enumeration of all the public queues that are on the network.

Because the cursor is associated with a dynamic listing, the enumeration reflects any modification you make to a queue list for queues deleted or added beyond the cursor's current position. Additions or deletion of queues located before the cursor's current position are not reflected. For example, the enumerator can automatically access a queue appended beyond the cursor position but not one inserted before that position. However, you can reset the enumeration, thereby moving the cursor back to the beginning of the list, by calling Reset for the MessageQueueEnumerator.

There is no defined ordering of queues in a network. An enumerator does not order them, for example, by computer, label, public or private status, or any other accessible criteria.

If you want a static snapshot of the queues on the network rather than a dynamic connection to them, call GetPublicQueues or GetPrivateQueuesByMachine(String). Each of these two methods returns an array of MessageQueue objects, which represent the queues at the time the method was called.

Remarks

This overload of GetMessageQueueEnumerator returns a listing of all the public queues on the network that satisfy criteria defined in the application criteria. You can specify the criteria to include, for example, queue creation or modification time, computer name, label, category, or any combination of these.

Because the cursor is associated with a dynamic listing, the enumeration reflects any modification you make to a queue that occurs beyond the cursor's current position. Changes to queues located before the cursor's current position are not reflected. For example, the enumerator can automatically access a queue appended beyond the cursor position but not one inserted before that position. However, you can reset the enumeration, thereby moving the cursor back to the beginning of the list, by calling Reset for the MessageQueueEnumerator.

There is no defined ordering of queues in a network. An enumerator does not order them, for example, by computer, label, public or private status, or any other accessible criteria.

If you want a static snapshot of the queues on the network rather than a dynamic connection to them, specify criteria for GetPublicQueues or call GetPrivateQueuesByMachine(String). Each of these two methods returns an array of MessageQueue objects, which represent the queues at the time the method was called. Calling GetPublicQueuesByCategory(Guid), GetPublicQueuesByLabel(String), or GetPublicQueuesByMachine(String) provides the same results as calling GetPublicQueues with the filtering criteria of Category, Label, and MachineName, respectively.

The following table shows whether this method is available in various Workgroup modes.
