Assembly: System.ServiceProcess (in system.serviceprocess.dll)
/** @property */ public boolean get_CanShutdown () /** @property */ public void set_CanShutdown (boolean value)
public function get CanShutdown () : boolean public function set CanShutdown (value : boolean)
Property Valuetrue if the service should be notified when the system is shutting down; otherwise, false.
The service has already been started. The CanShutdown property cannot be changed once the service has started.
If CanShutdown is true, the service is notified when the system is shutting down. At shutdown, the OnShutdown method is called if it has been implemented in your derived class.
Only the system should cause the OnShutdown method to execute; the service can call it, but this is not recommended.
The following example shows the use of the CanShutdown property to indicate that a class derived from ServiceBase can handle the event. This example is part of a larger example provided for the ServiceBase class.
