Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example uses the ServiceController class to check the current status of the TelNet service. If the service is stopped, the example starts the service. If the service is running, the example stops the service.

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] Note   This example shows how to use one of the overloaded versions of the ServiceController constructor. For other examples that might be available, see the individual overload topics.
