ReaderWriterLock.IsWriterLockHeld Property

Definition

Gets a value indicating whether the current thread holds the writer lock.

public:
 property bool IsWriterLockHeld { bool get(); };
public bool IsWriterLockHeld { get; }
member this.IsWriterLockHeld : bool
Public ReadOnly Property IsWriterLockHeld As Boolean

Property Value

true if the current thread holds the writer lock; otherwise, false.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates that when an attempt is made to acquire a reader lock on a thread that has a writer lock, ReaderWriterLock does not grant the reader lock but instead increments the lock count on the writer lock.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Threading;
int main()
{
   ReaderWriterLock^ rwLock = gcnew ReaderWriterLock;
   rwLock->AcquireWriterLock( Timeout::Infinite );
   rwLock->AcquireReaderLock( Timeout::Infinite );
   if ( rwLock->IsReaderLockHeld )
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "Reader lock held." );
      rwLock->ReleaseReaderLock();
   }
   else
   if ( rwLock->IsWriterLockHeld )
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "Writer lock held." );
      rwLock->ReleaseWriterLock();
   }
   else
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "No locks held." );
   }


   if ( rwLock->IsReaderLockHeld )
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "Reader lock held." );
      rwLock->ReleaseReaderLock();
   }
   else
   if ( rwLock->IsWriterLockHeld )
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "Writer lock held." );
      rwLock->ReleaseWriterLock();
   }
   else
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "No locks held." );
   }
}

using System;
using System.Threading;

class LockHeld
{
    static void Main()
    {
        ReaderWriterLock rwLock = new ReaderWriterLock();

        rwLock.AcquireWriterLock(Timeout.Infinite);
        rwLock.AcquireReaderLock(Timeout.Infinite);

        if(rwLock.IsReaderLockHeld)
        {
            Console.WriteLine("Reader lock held.");
            rwLock.ReleaseReaderLock();
        }
        else if(rwLock.IsWriterLockHeld)
        {
            Console.WriteLine("Writer lock held.");
            rwLock.ReleaseWriterLock();
        }
        else
        {
            Console.WriteLine("No locks held.");
        }

            rwLock.ReleaseWriterLock();
        }
        else
        {
            Console.WriteLine("No locks held.");
        }
    }
