Stopped The service is not running.
StopPending The service is stopping.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example uses the ServiceController class to check the current status of the TelNet service. If the service is stopped, the example starts the service. If the service is running, the example stops the service.

[Visual Basic] 

         ' Toggle the Telnet service - 
         ' If it is started (running, paused, etc), stop the service.
         ' If it is stopped, start the service.
         Dim sc As New ServiceController("Telnet")
         Console.WriteLine("The Telnet service status is currently set to {0}", sc.Status)
         
         If sc.Status.Equals(ServiceControllerStatus.Stopped) Or sc.Status.Equals(ServiceControllerStatus.StopPending) Then
            ' Start the service if the current status is stopped.
            Console.WriteLine("Starting the Telnet service...")
            sc.Start()
         Else
            ' Stop the service if its status is not set to "Stopped".
            Console.WriteLine("Stopping the Telnet service...")
            sc.Stop()
         End If
         
         ' Refresh and display the current service status.
         sc.Refresh()
         Console.WriteLine("The Telnet service status is now set to {0}.", sc.Status)


[C#] 

         // Toggle the Telnet service - 
         // If it is started (running, paused, etc), stop the service.
         // If it is stopped, start the service.
         ServiceController sc = new ServiceController("Telnet");
         Console.WriteLine("The Telnet service status is currently set to {0}", 
                           sc.Status.ToString());

         if  ((sc.Status.Equals(ServiceControllerStatus.Stopped)) ||
              (sc.Status.Equals(ServiceControllerStatus.StopPending)))
         {
            // Start the service if the current status is stopped.

            Console.WriteLine("Starting the Telnet service...");
            sc.Start();
         }  
         else
         {
            // Stop the service if its status is not set to "Stopped".

            Console.WriteLine("Stopping the Telnet service...");
            sc.Stop();
         }  

         // Refresh and display the current service status.
         sc.Refresh();
         Console.WriteLine("The Telnet service status is now set to {0}.", 
                            sc.Status.ToString());
         

[C++] 

         // Toggle the Telnet service - 
         // If it is started (running, paused, etc), stop the service.
         // If it is stopped, start the service.
         ServiceController *sc = new ServiceController("Telnet");

         if (sc)
         {
            Console::WriteLine("The Telnet service status is currently set to {0}", 
                              __box(sc->Status));

            if  ((sc->Status == (ServiceControllerStatus::Stopped)) ||
                 (sc->Status == (ServiceControllerStatus::StopPending)))
            {
               // Start the service if the current status is stopped.
   
               Console::WriteLine("Starting the Telnet service...");
               sc->Start();
            }  
            else
            {
               // Stop the service if its status is not set to "Stopped".
   
               Console::WriteLine("Stopping the Telnet service...");
               sc->Stop();
            }  

            // Refresh and display the current service status.
            sc->Refresh();
            Console::WriteLine("The Telnet service status is now set to {0}.", 
                               __box(sc->Status));
