ExecutionContext.SuppressFlow Method

Note: This method is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Suppresses the flow of the execution context across asynchronous threads.

Namespace: System.Threading
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public static AsyncFlowControl SuppressFlow ()
public static AsyncFlowControl SuppressFlow ()
public static function SuppressFlow () : AsyncFlowControl

Return Value

An AsyncFlowControl structure for restoring the flow.

Use this method to suppress the flow of the ExecutionContext on the current thread.

You must use the Undo method on the returned AsyncFlowControl structure to restore the flow of the ExecutionContext.

This method is protected with a SecurityAction.LinkDemand for SecurityPermissionFlag.Infrastructure permission. A fully trusted component can call this method to suppress the flow of the ExecutionContext during asynchronous calls. While the flow is suppressed, the Capture method returns a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

The following code example shows the use of the SuppressFlow method. This example is part of a larger example provided for the ExecutionContext class.

AsyncFlowControl aFC = ExecutionContext.SuppressFlow();

  • SecurityPermission  for operating with infrastructure code. Demand value: SecurityAction.LinkDemand; Permission value: SecurityPermissionFlag.Infrastructure
