WaitHandle Methods

The WaitHandle type exposes the following members.

  Name Description
Public method Close Releases all resources held by the current WaitHandle.
Public method CreateObjRef Creates an object that contains all the relevant information required to generate a proxy used to communicate with a remote object. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)
Public method Dispose() Releases all resources used by the current instance of the WaitHandle class.
Protected method Dispose(Boolean) When overridden in a derived class, releases the unmanaged resources used by the WaitHandle, and optionally releases the managed resources.
Public method Equals(Object) Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected method Finalize Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method GetHashCode Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method GetLifetimeService Retrieves the current lifetime service object that controls the lifetime policy for this instance. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)
Public method GetType Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method InitializeLifetimeService Obtains a lifetime service object to control the lifetime policy for this instance. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)
Protected method MemberwiseClone() Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected method MemberwiseClone(Boolean) Creates a shallow copy of the current MarshalByRefObject object. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)
Public method Static member SignalAndWait(WaitHandle, WaitHandle) Signals one WaitHandle and waits on another.
Public method Static member SignalAndWait(WaitHandle, WaitHandle, Int32, Boolean) Signals one WaitHandle and waits on another, specifying a time-out interval as a 32-bit signed integer and specifying whether to exit the synchronization domain for the context before entering the wait.
Public method Static member SignalAndWait(WaitHandle, WaitHandle, TimeSpan, Boolean) Signals one WaitHandle and waits on another, specifying the time-out interval as a TimeSpan and specifying whether to exit the synchronization domain for the context before entering the wait.
Public method ToString Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method Static member WaitAll(WaitHandle[]) Waits for all the elements in the specified array to receive a signal.
Public method Static member WaitAll(WaitHandle[], Int32) Waits for all the elements in the specified array to receive a signal, using an Int32 value to specify the time interval.
Public method Static member WaitAll(WaitHandle[], TimeSpan) Waits for all the elements in the specified array to receive a signal, using a TimeSpan value to specify the time interval.
Public method Static member WaitAll(WaitHandle[], Int32, Boolean) Waits for all the elements in the specified array to receive a signal, using an Int32 value to specify the time interval and specifying whether to exit the synchronization domain before the wait.
Public method Static member WaitAll(WaitHandle[], TimeSpan, Boolean) Waits for all the elements in the specified array to receive a signal, using a TimeSpan value to specify the time interval, and specifying whether to exit the synchronization domain before the wait.
Public method Static member WaitAny(WaitHandle[]) Waits for any of the elements in the specified array to receive a signal.
Public method Static member WaitAny(WaitHandle[], Int32) Waits for any of the elements in the specified array to receive a signal, using a 32-bit signed integer to specify the time interval.
Public method Static member WaitAny(WaitHandle[], TimeSpan) Waits for any of the elements in the specified array to receive a signal, using a TimeSpan to specify the time interval.
Public method Static member WaitAny(WaitHandle[], Int32, Boolean) Waits for any of the elements in the specified array to receive a signal, using a 32-bit signed integer to specify the time interval, and specifying whether to exit the synchronization domain before the wait.
Public method Static member WaitAny(WaitHandle[], TimeSpan, Boolean) Waits for any of the elements in the specified array to receive a signal, using a TimeSpan to specify the time interval and specifying whether to exit the synchronization domain before the wait.
Public method WaitOne() Blocks the current thread until the current WaitHandle receives a signal.
Public method WaitOne(Int32) Blocks the current thread until the current WaitHandle receives a signal, using a 32-bit signed integer to specify the time interval.
Public method WaitOne(TimeSpan) Blocks the current thread until the current instance receives a signal, using a TimeSpan to specify the time interval.
Public method WaitOne(Int32, Boolean) Blocks the current thread until the current WaitHandle receives a signal, using a 32-bit signed integer to specify the time interval and specifying whether to exit the synchronization domain before the wait.
Public method WaitOne(TimeSpan, Boolean) Blocks the current thread until the current instance receives a signal, using a TimeSpan to specify the time interval and specifying whether to exit the synchronization domain before the wait.
