OnContinue Method

ServiceBase::OnContinue Method ()


When implemented in a derived class, OnContinue runs when a Continue command is sent to the service by the Service Control Manager (SCM). Specifies actions to take when a service resumes normal functioning after being paused.

Namespace:   System.ServiceProcess
Assembly:  System.ServiceProcess (in System.ServiceProcess.dll)

virtual void OnContinue()

Implement OnContinue to mirror your application's response to OnPause. When you continue the service (either through the Services console or programmatically), the OnContinue processing runs, and the service becomes active again.

OnContinue is expected to be overridden when the CanPauseAndContinue property is true.

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.
