When implemented in a derived class, executes when the Service Control Manager (SCM) passes a custom command to the service. Specifies actions to take when a command with the specified parameter value occurs.
Assembly: System.ServiceProcess (in System.ServiceProcess.dll)
lets you specify additional functionality beyond starting, stopping, pausing and continuing services.
The SCM does not examine the custom command to verify whether the service supports the command parameter passed in. It passes the custom command directly to the service. If the service does not recognize the command parameter, it does nothing.
The only values for a custom command that you can define in your application or use in are those between 128 and 255. Integers below 128 correspond to system-reserved values.
If the AutoLog property is true, custom commands, like all other commands, write entries to the event log to report whether the method execution succeeded or failed.
