Executes a custom command on the service.
Assembly: System.ServiceProcess (in System.ServiceProcess.dll)
When you call , the status of the service does not change. If the service was started, the status remains Running. If the service was stopped, the status remains Stopped, and so on. To process the custom command, the service must override the OnCustomCommand method and provide a handler for the command identified by the command parameter.
The following code example shows the use of the method to execute custom commands in the SimpleService service example.
Imports System Imports System.ServiceProcess Class Program Private Enum SimpleServiceCustomCommands StopWorker = 128 RestartWorker CheckWorker ' End Enum 'SimpleServiceCustomCommands Shared Sub Main(ByVal args() As String) Dim myService As New ServiceController("SimpleService") myService.ExecuteCommand(Fix(SimpleServiceCustomCommands.StopWorker)) myService.ExecuteCommand(Fix(SimpleServiceCustomCommands.RestartWorker)) myService.ExecuteCommand(Fix(SimpleServiceCustomCommands.CheckWorker)) End Sub 'Main End Class 'Program
