public function get CanPauseAndContinue () : boolean public function set CanPauseAndContinue (value : boolean)
Property Valuetrue if the service can be paused; otherwise, false.
The service has already been started. The CanPauseAndContinue property cannot be changed once the service has started.
When a service is paused, it halts what it is doing. When you continue the service (either through the Service Control Manager or programmatically), OnContinue runs.
Sending a Pause request to the service can conserve system resources. Pause may not release all system resources, but Stop does. OnPause and OnContinue are often implemented to perform less processing than OnStop and OnStart.
When CanPauseAndContinue is true, override OnPause and OnContinue to specify the processing that should occur when the Service Control Manager (SCM) passes a Pause or Continue request to your service. OnContinue should be implemented to undo the processing in OnPause.
If CanPauseAndContinue is false, the SCM will not pass Pause or Continue requests to the service, so the OnPause and OnContinue methods will not be called even if they are implemented. In the SCM, the Pause and Continue controls are disabled when CanPauseAndContinue is false.
