ProcessExit Event

AppDomain.ProcessExit Event


Occurs when the default application domain's parent process exits.

Namespace:   System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public event EventHandler ProcessExit

The EventHandler for this event can perform termination activities, such as closing files, releasing storage and so on, before the process ends.

Beginning with the .NET Framework version 2.0, this event is raised in each application domain that registers an event handler.


The total execution time of all ProcessExit event handlers is limited, just as the total execution time of all finalizers is limited at process shutdown. The default is two seconds. An unmanaged host can change this execution time by calling the method with the enumeration value.

In the .NET Framework versions 1.0 and 1.1, this event is raised only in the default application domain, and only if an event handler is registered in the default application domain.

To register an event handler for this event, you must have the required permissions, or a SecurityException is thrown.

For more information about handling events, see Handling and Raising Events.
