Description

The Receive-MsmqQueue cmdlet does a destructive read from a queue. The cmdlet returns the received System.Messaging.Message object. This cmdlet accepts values for the Name parameter of path names, format names, and direct format names. Some other Message Queuing (also known as MSMQ) cmdlets require a friendly name for the queue. If you specify the Peek parameter, the cmdlet peeks at the message instead of doing a destructive read.

The cmdlet succeeds if it returns at least one message.

If you specify the Peek parameter, this cmdlet returns the number of messages that is the minimum of the number supplied by the Count parameter and the number of messages in the queue.

Examples

Example 1: Perform a transacted read

PS C:\> Get-MsmqQueue -Name "a04bm10\private$\order_queue" | Receive-MsmqQueue -Transactional

This command gets the specified queue by using the Get-MsmqQueue cmdlet. The command passes the result to the current cmdlet by using the pipeline operator. The current cmdlet performs a transacted read on the queue.
