Public methodWindowsFormsSynchronizationContextInitializes a new instance of the WindowsFormsSynchronizationContext class.

Public propertyStatic memberAutoInstallGets or sets a value indicating whether the WindowsFormsSynchronizationContext is installed when a control is created.

Public methodCreateCopyCopies the synchronization context. (Overrides SynchronizationContext.CreateCopy().)
Public methodDisposeReleases all resources used by the WindowsFormsSynchronizationContext.
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodIsWaitNotificationRequiredDetermines if wait notification is required. (Inherited from SynchronizationContext.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodOperationCompletedWhen overridden in a derived class, responds to the notification that an operation has completed. (Inherited from SynchronizationContext.)
Public methodOperationStartedWhen overridden in a derived class, responds to the notification that an operation has started. (Inherited from SynchronizationContext.)
Public methodPostDispatches an asynchronous message to a synchronization context. (Overrides SynchronizationContext.Post(SendOrPostCallback, Object).)
Public methodSendDispatches a synchronous message to a synchronization context (Overrides SynchronizationContext.Send(SendOrPostCallback, Object).)
Protected methodSetWaitNotificationRequiredSets notification that wait notification is required and prepares the callback method so it can be called more reliably when a wait occurs. (Inherited from SynchronizationContext.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
