.NET Framework 1.1
Resumes a thread that has been suspended.
[Visual Basic] Public Sub Resume() [C#] public void Resume(); [C++] public: void Resume(); [JScript] public function Resume();
|ThreadStateException||The thread has not been started, is dead, or is not in the suspended state.|
|SecurityException||The caller does not have the appropriate SecurityPermission.|
CAUTION Do not use the Suspend and Resume methods to synchronize the activities of threads. You have no way of knowing what code a thread is executing when you suspend it. If you suspend a thread while it holds locks during a security permission evaluation, other threads in the AppDomain might be blocked. If you suspend a thread while it is executing a class constructor, other threads in the AppDomain that attempt to use that class are blocked. Deadlocks can occur very easily.
