Thread.Join Method (Int32)
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
The number of milliseconds to wait for the thread to terminate.
Return Valuetrue if the thread has terminated; false if the thread has not terminated after the amount of time specified by the millisecondsTimeout parameter has elapsed.
The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this method has the following Resources property value: Synchronization | ExternalThreading. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.
If Timeout.Infinite is specified for the millisecondsTimeout parameter, this method behaves identically to the Join method overload, except for the return value.
If the thread has already terminated when Join is called, the method returns immediately.
