Thread.Resume Thread.Resume Thread.Resume Thread.Resume Method



This API is now obsolete.

Resumes a thread that has been suspended.

 void Resume();
[System.Obsolete("Thread.Resume has been deprecated.  Please use other classes in System.Threading, such as Monitor, Mutex, Event, and Semaphore, to synchronize Threads or protect resources.", false)]
public void Resume ();
member this.Resume : unit -> unit
Public Sub Resume ()


The thread has not been started, is dead, or is not in the suspended state.



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.
