Exceptions

Examples

The following code example demonstrates the use of Purge.


// Connect to a queue on the local computer.
MessageQueue^ queue = gcnew MessageQueue(".\\exampleQueue");

// Delete all messages from the queue.
queue->Purge();

queue->Close();


// Connect to a queue on the local computer.
MessageQueue queue = new MessageQueue(".\\exampleQueue");

// Delete all messages from the queue.
queue.Purge();

Remarks

Purging the queue causes Message Queuing to set the queue modification flag, which affects the LastModifyTime property. Messages that are purged from the queue are lost; they are not sent to the dead-letter queue or the journal queue.
