The following code example shows how to name a thread.

using System;
using System.Threading;

class Name
{
    static void Main()
    {
        // Check whether the thread has previously been named
        // to avoid a possible InvalidOperationException.
        if(Thread.CurrentThread.Name == null)
        {
            Thread.CurrentThread.Name = "MainThread";
        }
        else
        {
            Console.WriteLine("Unable to name a previously " +
                "named thread.");
        }
    }
}

import System.*;
import System.Threading.*;
import System.Threading.Thread;

class Name
{
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Check whether the thread has previously been named
        // to avoid a possible InvalidOperationException.
        if (Thread.get_CurrentThread().get_Name() == null) {
            Thread.get_CurrentThread().set_Name("MainThread");
        }
        else {
            Console.WriteLine(("Unable to name a previously " 
                + "named thread."));
        } 
    } //main
} //Name
