Process.ExitTime Property

Gets the time that the associated process exited.

Namespace:  System.Diagnostics
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)
[BrowsableAttribute(false)]
public DateTime ExitTime { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.DateTime
A DateTime that indicates when the associated process was terminated.
ExceptionCondition
PlatformNotSupportedException

The platform is Windows 98 or Windows Millennium Edition (Windows Me), which does not support this property.

NotSupportedException

You are trying to access the ExitTime property for a process that is running on a remote computer. This property is available only for processes that are running on the local computer.

If the process has not terminated, attempting to retrieve the ExitTime property throws an exception. Use HasExited before getting the ExitTime property to determine whether the associated process has terminated.

The following code example creates a process that prints a file. The process raises the Exited event when it exits, and the event handler displays the ExitTime property and other process information.

using System;
using System.Diagnostics;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Threading;
using Microsoft.VisualBasic;

class PrintProcessClass
{

    private Process myProcess = new Process();
    private int elapsedTime;
    private bool eventHandled;

    // Print a file with any known extension. 
    public void PrintDoc(string fileName)
    {

        elapsedTime = 0;
        eventHandled = false;

        try
        {
            // Start a process to print a file and raise an event when done.
            myProcess.StartInfo.FileName = fileName;
            myProcess.StartInfo.Verb = "Print";
            myProcess.StartInfo.CreateNoWindow = true;
            myProcess.EnableRaisingEvents = true;
            myProcess.Exited += new EventHandler(myProcess_Exited);
            myProcess.Start();

        }
        catch (Exception ex)
        {
            Console.WriteLine("An error occurred trying to print \"{0}\":" + "\n" + ex.Message, fileName);
            return;
        }

        // Wait for Exited event, but not more than 30 seconds. 
        const int SLEEP_AMOUNT = 100;
        while (!eventHandled)
        {
            elapsedTime += SLEEP_AMOUNT;
            if (elapsedTime > 30000)
            {
                break;
            }
            Thread.Sleep(SLEEP_AMOUNT);
        }
    }

    // Handle Exited event and display process information. 
    private void myProcess_Exited(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    {

        eventHandled = true;
        Console.WriteLine("Exit time:    {0}\r\n" +
            "Exit code:    {1}\r\nElapsed time: {2}", myProcess.ExitTime, myProcess.ExitCode, elapsedTime);
    }

    public static void Main(string[] args)
    {

        // Verify that an argument has been entered. 
        if (args.Length <= 0)
        {
            Console.WriteLine("Enter a file name.");
            return;
        }

        // Create the process and print the document.
        PrintProcessClass myPrintProcess = new PrintProcessClass();
        myPrintProcess.PrintDoc(args[0]);
    }
}
