Message.ArrivedTime Property

Gets the time that the message arrived in the destination queue.

Namespace:  System.Messaging
Assembly:  System.Messaging (in System.Messaging.dll)

public DateTime ArrivedTime { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.DateTime
A DateTime that represents the message's arrival time in the destination queue. The time is adjusted from GMT to the local time of the computer on which the destination queue resides.


The message has not been sent. This property can only be read on messages retrieved from a queue.


The message queue is filtered to ignore the ArrivedTime property.

The message's TimeToBeReceived property indicates how quickly the message must be received from the destination queue. The TimeToBeReceived property timer starts when the message is sent, not when the message arrives in the queue.

The following code example displays the value of a message's ArrivedTime property.

// Display the value of the message's ArrivedTime property. 
// To view this property value, the queue's 
// MessageReadPropertyFilter.ArrivedTime property must be set to 
// true before the message is received.
Console.WriteLine("Time arrived in destination queue: {0}",
