Examples

The following code example iterates through all the message queues in the network, and examines the path for each queue. Finally, it displays the number of public queues on the network.

#using <System.dll>
#using <System.Messaging.dll>

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Messaging;

// Iterates through message queues and examines the

//**************************************************
void ListPublicQueues()
{
   
   // Holds the count of private queues.
   int numberQueues = 0;
   
   // Get a cursor into the queues on the network.
   MessageQueueEnumerator^ myQueueEnumerator = MessageQueue::GetMessageQueueEnumerator();
   
   // Move to the next queue and read its path.
   while ( myQueueEnumerator->MoveNext() )
   {
      
      // Increase the count if priority is Lowest.
      Console::WriteLine( myQueueEnumerator->Current->Path );
      numberQueues++;
   }

   
   // Display final count.
   Console::WriteLine( "Number of public queues: {0}", numberQueues );
   return;

Remarks

Use MessageQueueEnumerator for dynamic interaction with queues on the network. Methods available through the MessageQueue class can return either a MessageQueueEnumerator containing a dynamic list of queues, or an array that contains a snapshot of the queue collection at the time the specified method was called.

There is no defined ordering of queues in a network. They are not ordered, for example, by computer, label, public or private status, or other user-accessible criteria. A MessageQueueEnumerator is a cursor, initialized to the head of a dynamic list. You can move the cursor to the first queue of the enumeration by calling MoveNext. After the enumerator has been initialized, you can use MoveNext to step forward through the remaining queues.

It is not possible to step backward with a MessageQueueEnumerator. A cursor only allows forward movement through the queue enumeration. However, you can call Reset to reset the enumeration and put the cursor at the beginning of the list again. Because the enumerator is dynamic, a queue that is appended beyond the cursor's current position can be accessed by the enumerator. A queue that is inserted before the cursor's current position cannot be accessed without first calling Reset.
