ServiceBase.CanShutdown Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the service should be notified when the system is shutting down.

Namespace:  System.ServiceProcess
Assembly:  System.ServiceProcess (in System.ServiceProcess.dll)
public bool CanShutdown { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the service should be notified when the system is shutting down; otherwise, false. The default is false.
ExceptionCondition
InvalidOperationException

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.

NoteNote

Only the system should cause the OnShutdown method to execute; the service can call it, but this is not recommended.
