Mutex Constructor (Boolean, String, Boolean%)

For apps that target Windows Phone OS 7.0 and 7.1, do not use this member in your app. If you do, your code will throw a MethodAccessException. This member is security-critical, which restricts it to internal use by the .NET Framework for Windows Phone class library.

[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

Initializes a new instance of the Mutex class with a Boolean value that indicates whether the calling thread should have initial ownership of the mutex, a string that is the name of the mutex, and a Boolean value that, when the method returns, indicates whether the calling thread was granted initial ownership of the mutex.

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

Type: System.Boolean
true to give the calling thread initial ownership of the named system mutex if the named system mutex is created as a result of this call; otherwise, false.
Type: System.String
The name of the Mutex. If the value is Nothing, the Mutex is unnamed.
Type: System.Boolean %
When this method returns, contains a Boolean that is true if a local mutex was created (that is, if name is Nothing or an empty string) or if the specified named system mutex was created; false if the specified named system mutex already existed. This parameter is passed uninitialized.
