Thread::Join Method (Int32)
Blocks the calling thread until a thread terminates or the specified time elapses, while continuing to perform standard COM and SendMessage pumping.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
[HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction::LinkDemand, Synchronization = true, ExternalThreading = true)] public: bool Join( int millisecondsTimeout )
- Type: System::Int32
The number of milliseconds to wait for the thread to terminate.
Return ValueType: System::Boolean
true if the thread has terminated; false if the thread has not terminated after the amount of time specified by the millisecondsTimeout parameter has elapsed.
is a synchronization method that blocks the calling thread (that is, the thread that calls the method) until either the thread whose Join method is called has completed or the time-out interval has elapsed. In the following example, the Thread1 thread calls the Join() method of Thread2, which causes Thread1 to block either until Thread2 has completed or 2 seconds have elapsed.
If the thread has already terminated when Join is called, the method returns immediately.
