Adding message in a Windows Azure Queue

In this post I will show you code snippet to add message in azure queue. I have written a function returning Boolean value and taking string input parameter to add as message in queue.

Create instance of cloud storage account


Create a client of azure queue


Get the reference of particular queue. Create queue if does not exist


Add message to queue


For your reference full source code is given below,

public bool AddMessageinQueue(string MessageToAdd, string QueueName)
CloudStorageAccount account = CloudStorageAccount.Parse(RoleEnvironment.GetConfigurationSettingValue("DataConnectionString"));
CloudQueueClient queueClient = account.CreateCloudQueueClient();
CloudQueue queue = queueClient.GetQueueReference(QueueName);

CloudQueueMessage m = new CloudQueueMessage(MessageToAdd);

return true;

catch (Exception ex)
return false;



In this way you can add message in azure queue. I hope this post was useful. Thanks for reading Smile
