how to test TransactionScope

i have a wrapper class for TransactionScopes being used in multiple places, one of them is the root.  what is the best way to test my nested TransactionScopes actually work?  For example, i want to make sure that when my wrapper's Displose() is called, all TransactionScopes are now null.  also, what is the best way to find out which TransactionScope i am looking at, via System.Thread.Current?

Can you describe why you need this (it might help me answer the question)?  TransactionScope already supports nesting so I'm trying to understand what you are doing to determine if the test you are looking for simply tests the functionality of TransactionScope.

yes you are right, i am simply doing the unenviable, testing out someone else's code.  the wrapper class is to make sure all TransactionScope is using the ReadCommitted isolation level.

You want to test the read commited isolation level vs other isolation levels?  Or you simply want to confirm that a transaction is properly being rolled back?

A basic test would be (basics like connecting to the db have been omited):
Int32 id;
using(TransactionScope transaction = new TransactionScope())
{
  
  id = MyBusinessClass.ExecuteMyMethod()
  
  //query db to check for new records:
  SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("select 1 from mytable where id=" + id.ToString());
  //test should be 1 and not null
  Object test = cmd.ExecuteScalar()

  //don't complete so the transaction is rolled back
  //transaction.Complete()
}
//query db to check for new records:
SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("select 1 from mytable where id=" + id.ToString());
//test should now be null since transaction has been rolled back.
Object test = cmd.ExecuteScalar()
