SemaphoreSlim.Wait Method (TimeSpan)

.NET Framework 4.6 and 4.5

Blocks the current thread until it can enter the SemaphoreSlim, using a TimeSpan to specify the timeout.

Namespace:  System.Threading
Assemblies:   mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
  System.Threading (in System.Threading.dll)

public bool Wait(
	TimeSpan timeout
)

Parameters

timeout
Type: System.TimeSpan

A TimeSpan that represents the number of milliseconds to wait, or a TimeSpan that represents -1 milliseconds to wait indefinitely.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the current thread successfully entered the SemaphoreSlim; otherwise, false.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

timeout is a negative number other than -1 milliseconds, which represents an infinite time-out -or- timeout is greater than MaxValue.

ObjectDisposedException

The semaphoreSlim instance has been disposed.

If a thread or task is able to enter the semaphore, it decrements the CurrentCount property by one.

If a thread or task is blocked when calling Wait(TimeSpan) and the time-out interval specified by timeout expires, the thread or task doesn’t enter the semaphore, and the CurrentCount property isn’t decremented.
