ServiceController Constructor ()

Initializes a new instance of the ServiceController class that is not associated with a specific service.

Namespace: System.ServiceProcess
Assembly: System.ServiceProcess (in system.serviceprocess.dll)

'Declaration
Public Sub New
'Usage
Dim instance As New ServiceController
public ServiceController ()
public function ServiceController ()

The following example uses the ServiceController class to check whether the Alerter service is stopped. If the service is stopped, the example starts the service and waits until the service status is set to Running.


' Check whether the Alerter service is started.

Dim sc As New ServiceController()
sc.ServiceName = "Alerter"
Console.WriteLine("The Alerter service status is currently set to {0}", sc.Status)

If sc.Status = ServiceControllerStatus.Stopped Then
   ' Start the service if the current status is stopped.
   Console.WriteLine("Starting the Alerter service...")

   Try
      ' Start the service, and wait until its status is "Running".
      sc.Start()
      sc.WaitForStatus(ServiceControllerStatus.Running)
      
      ' Display the current service status.
      Console.WriteLine("The Alerter service status is now set to {0}.", sc.Status)
   Catch 
      Console.WriteLine("Could not start the Alerter service.")
   End Try
End If


// Check whether the Alerter service is started.
ServiceController sc = new ServiceController();
sc.set_ServiceName("Alerter");
Console.WriteLine("The Alerter service status is currently set to {0}",
    sc.get_Status().ToString());

if (sc.get_Status().Equals(ServiceControllerStatus.Stopped)) {
    // Start the service if the current status is stopped.
    Console.WriteLine("Starting the Alerter service...");
    try {
        // Start the service, and wait until its status is 
        // "Running".
        sc.Start();
        sc.WaitForStatus(ServiceControllerStatus.Running);
        // Display the current service status.
        Console.WriteLine("The Alerter service status is now set to {0}.",
            sc.get_Status().ToString());
    }
    catch (InvalidOperationException exp) {
        Console.WriteLine("Could not start the Alerter service.");
    }
}
