Remarks

Use this overload if you want a complete list of all the public queues on the network. If you want to restrict the list by certain criteria, such as MachineName, Category, or last modified time use another overload of this method. (Alternatively, you can use GetPublicQueuesByMachine(String), GetPublicQueuesByCategory(Guid), or GetPublicQueuesByLabel(String).)

GetPublicQueues retrieves a static snapshot of the queues. To interact with a dynamic list of the queues, use GetMessageQueueEnumerator.

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

Remarks

If you want to filter all the public queues on the network by label, category, or computer name, the MessageQueue class contains specific methods that provide that functionality (GetPublicQueuesByLabel(String), GetPublicQueuesByCategory(Guid), and GetPublicQueuesByMachine(String), respectively). Use this overload to get a list of all the public queues on the network that meet more than one of these criteria (for example, if you want to specify both a label and a category). You can also filter by message criteria other than Label, Category, and MachineName. For example, you use this overload to filter by a queue's last-modified time. Simply create a new instance of the MessageQueueCriteria class, set the appropriate properties in the instance, and pass the instance as the criteria parameter.

GetPublicQueues retrieves a static snapshot of the queues. To interact with a dynamic list of the queues, use GetMessageQueueEnumerator.

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