WaitForStatus Method (ServiceControllerStatus)

ServiceController.WaitForStatus Method (ServiceControllerStatus)

Infinitely waits for the service to reach the specified status.

Namespace:  System.ServiceProcess
Assembly:  System.ServiceProcess (in System.ServiceProcess.dll)

member WaitForStatus : 
        desiredStatus:ServiceControllerStatus -> unit 

Parameters

desiredStatus
Type: System.ServiceProcess.ServiceControllerStatus
The status to wait for.

ExceptionCondition
InvalidEnumArgumentException

The desiredStatus parameter is not any of the values defined in the ServiceControllerStatus enumeration.

Use WaitForStatus to suspend an application's processing until the service has reached the required status.

NoteNote

The WaitForStatus method waits approximately 250 milliseconds between each status check. WaitForStatus cannot detect the case of the observed service changing to the desiredStatus and then immediately to another status in that interval.

The following example uses the ServiceController class to check whether the Alerter service is stopped. If the service is stopped, the example starts the service and waits until the service status is set to Running.
