Gets a value that indicates the recursion policy for the current ReaderWriterLockSlim object.
Assembly: System.Core (in System.Core.dll)
Recursion policy determines the restrictions on threads that enter the lock more than once. For example, if a lock was created with LockRecursionPolicy.NoRecursion and a thread has entered the lock in read mode, LockRecursionException is thrown if the thread tries to reenter the lock in read mode.
A thread in upgradeable mode can upgrade to write mode or downgrade to read mode regardless of the lock recursion policy setting.
Regardless of recursion policy, a thread that initially entered read mode is not allowed to upgrade to upgradeable mode or write mode, because that pattern creates a strong probability of deadlocks.
