Examples

The following code example shows how to pass information to a thread that is being aborted.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Threading;
ref class Test
{
private:
   Test(){}


public:
   static void TestMethod()
   {
      try
      {
         while ( true )
         {
            Console::WriteLine( "New thread running." );
            Thread::Sleep( 1000 );
         }
      }
      catch ( ThreadAbortException^ abortException ) 
      {
         Console::WriteLine( dynamic_cast<String^>(abortException->ExceptionState) );
      }

   }

};

int main()
{
   Thread^ newThread = gcnew Thread( gcnew ThreadStart( &Test::TestMethod ) );
   newThread->Start();
   Thread::Sleep( 1000 );
   
   // Abort newThread.
   Console::WriteLine( "Main aborting new thread." );
   newThread->Abort( "Information from main." );
   
   // Wait for the thread to terminate.
   newThread->Join();
   Console::WriteLine( "New thread terminated - main exiting." );
}

using System;
using System.Threading;

class Test
{
    public static void Main()
    {
        Thread newThread  = new Thread(new ThreadStart(TestMethod));
        newThread.Start();
        Thread.Sleep(1000);

        // Abort newThread.
        Console.WriteLine("Main aborting new thread.");
        newThread.Abort("Information from Main.");

        // Wait for the thread to terminate.
        newThread.Join();
        Console.WriteLine("New thread terminated - Main exiting.");
    }

    static void TestMethod()
    {
        try
        {
            while(true)
            {
                Console.WriteLine("New thread running.");
                Thread.Sleep(1000);
            }
        }
        catch(ThreadAbortException abortException)
        {
            Console.WriteLine((string)abortException.ExceptionState);
        }
    }
}

        ' Abort newThread.
        Console.WriteLine("Main aborting new thread.")
        newThread.Abort("Information from Main.")

        ' Wait for the thread to terminate.
        newThread.Join()
        Console.WriteLine("New thread terminated - Main exiting.")
    End Sub

    Shared Sub TestMethod()
        Try
            While True
                Console.WriteLine("New thread running.")
                Thread.Sleep(1000)

        Catch abortException As ThreadAbortException
            Console.WriteLine( _

Remarks

The object returned by this property is specified through the stateInfo parameter of the Abort method. The exact content and usage of this object is application defined; it is typically used to convey information that is meaningful to the thread being aborted.
