Message.SentTime Property

Gets the date and time on the sending computer that the message was sent by the source queue manager.

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

public DateTime SentTime { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.DateTime
A DateTime that represents the time the message was sent.


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 SentTime property.

The SentTime property is adjusted to the local time of the computer on which this instance of the Message class was created. This time zone could be different from those of the source and destination queues.

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

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