A user can interrupt a console application process by simultaneously pressing the Control modifier key and the C console key (Ctrl+C), or the Control modifier key and the Break console key (Ctrl+Break). The .NET Framework consequently provides a ConsoleCancelEventArgs object to the event handler for the Console.CancelKeyPress event to specify whether the process should be cancelled.

If the Cancel property is set to true in the event handler, the process is resumed; otherwise, the process is terminated. By default, the value of the ConsoleCancelEventArgs property is false, and the process terminates.

The following example demonstrates how to use the ConsoleCancelEventArgs class to handle an event.
