ObsoleteAttribute("CreateWaitHandle will be removed eventually.  Please use \u0022new ManualResetEvent(false)\u0022 instead.") 
protected function CreateWaitHandle () : WaitHandle

Return Value

A reference to the allocated WaitHandle.

For an example of creating a file and writing text to a file, see How to: Write Text to a File. For an example of reading text from a file, see How to: Read Text from a File. For an example of reading from and writing to a binary file, see How to: Read and Write to a Newly Created Data File.

When called for the first time, the current method creates a WaitHandle object and returns it. On subsequent calls, CreateWaitHandle returns a reference to a unique wait handle.

Use this method if you implement the asynchronous methods and require a way of blocking in EndRead or EndWrite until the asynchronous operation is complete.
