DependentCloneOption DependentCloneOption DependentCloneOption DependentCloneOption Enum

Definition

Controls what kind of dependent transaction to create.

Fields

BlockCommitUntilComplete BlockCommitUntilComplete BlockCommitUntilComplete BlockCommitUntilComplete 0

The dependent transaction blocks the commit process of the transaction until the parent transaction times out, or Complete() is called. In this case, additional work can be done on the transaction and new enlistments can be created.

RollbackIfNotComplete RollbackIfNotComplete RollbackIfNotComplete RollbackIfNotComplete 1

The dependent transaction automatically aborts the transaction if Commit is called on the parent transaction before Complete() is called.

Examples

The following example shows you how to create a dependent transaction.

static void Main(string[] args)
{
    try
    {
        using (TransactionScope scope = new TransactionScope())
        {
            // Perform transactional work here.

            //Queue work item
            ThreadPool.QueueUserWorkItem(new WaitCallback(WorkerThread), Transaction.Current.DependentClone(DependentCloneOption.BlockCommitUntilComplete));

            //Display transaction information
            Console.WriteLine("Transaction information:");
            Console.WriteLine("ID:             {0}", Transaction.Current.TransactionInformation.LocalIdentifier);
            Console.WriteLine("status:         {0}", Transaction.Current.TransactionInformation.Status);
            Console.WriteLine("isolationlevel: {0}", Transaction.Current.IsolationLevel);

            //Call Complete on the TransactionScope based on console input
            ConsoleKeyInfo c;
            while (true)
            {
                            Console.Write("Complete the transaction scope? [Y|N] ");
                c = Console.ReadKey();
                Console.WriteLine();

                if ((c.KeyChar == 'Y') || (c.KeyChar == 'y'))
                {
                    //Call complete on the scope
                    scope.Complete();
                    break;
                }
                else if ((c.KeyChar == 'N') || (c.KeyChar == 'n'))
                {
                    break;
                }
            }

        }
    }
    catch (System.Transactions.TransactionException ex)
    {
        Console.WriteLine(ex);
    }
    catch
    {
        Console.WriteLine("Cannot complete transaction");
        throw;
    }
    
}

private static void WorkerThread(object transaction)
{
    //Create a DependentTransaction from the object passed to the WorkerThread
    DependentTransaction dTx = (DependentTransaction)transaction;

    //Sleep for 1 second to force the worker thread to delay
    Thread.Sleep(1000);

    //Pass the DependentTransaction to the scope, so that work done in the scope becomes part of the transaction passed to the worker thread
    using (TransactionScope ts = new TransactionScope(dTx))
    {
        //Perform transactional work here.

        //Call complete on the transaction scope
        ts.Complete();
    }

    //Call complete on the dependent transaction
    dTx.Complete();

    'Sleep for 1 second to force the worker thread to delay
    Thread.Sleep(1000)

    'Pass the DependentTransaction to the scope, so that work done in the scope becomes part of the transaction passed to the worker thread

Remarks

A dependent transaction can be obtained using the DependentClone method, with the DependentCloneOption parameter controlling what kind of dependent transaction to create. For more information on how this enumeration is used, see Managing Concurrency with DependentTransaction.
