The following code example shows the use of the CanHandleSessionChangeEvent property to indicate that a class derived from ServiceBase can handle the event. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the ServiceBase class.

private void InitializeComponent()
    // Initialize the operating properties for the service.
    this.CanPauseAndContinue = true;
    this.CanShutdown = true;
    this.CanHandleSessionChangeEvent = true;
    this.ServiceName = "SimpleService";
