ResetAbort Method

Thread.ResetAbort Method ()


Cancels an Abort requested for the current thread.

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

[SecurityPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.Demand, ControlThread = true)]
public static void ResetAbort()

Exception Condition

Abort was not invoked on the current thread.


The caller does not have the required security permission for the current thread.

This method can only be called by code with the proper permissions.

When a call is made to Abort to terminate a thread, the system throws a ThreadAbortException. ThreadAbortException is a special exception that can be caught by application code, but is rethrown at the end of the catch block unless ResetAbort is called. ResetAbort cancels the request to abort, and prevents the ThreadAbortException from terminating the thread.

See ThreadAbortException for an example that demonstrates calling the ResetAbort method.
