Public Shared Function UnsafeRegisterWaitForSingleObject (waitObject As WaitHandle, callBack As WaitOrTimerCallback, state As Object, millisecondsTimeOutInterval As Integer, executeOnlyOnce As Boolean) As RegisteredWaitHandle
Parameters
waitObject
WaitHandle WaitHandle WaitHandle WaitHandle

The WaitHandle to register. Use a WaitHandle other than Mutex.

callBack
WaitOrTimerCallback WaitOrTimerCallback WaitOrTimerCallback WaitOrTimerCallback

The delegate to call when the waitObject parameter is signaled.

state
Object Object Object Object

The object that is passed to the delegate.

millisecondsTimeOutInterval
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

The time-out in milliseconds. If the millisecondsTimeOutInterval parameter is 0 (zero), the function tests the object's state and returns immediately. If millisecondsTimeOutInterval is -1, the function's time-out interval never elapses.

executeOnlyOnce
Boolean Boolean Boolean Boolean

true to indicate that the thread will no longer wait on the waitObject parameter after the delegate has been called; false to indicate that the timer is reset every time the wait operation completes until the wait is unregistered.

Returns

The RegisteredWaitHandle object that can be used to cancel the registered wait operation.

Exceptions

The caller does not have the required permission.

Remarks

Unlike the RegisterWaitForSingleObject method, UnsafeRegisterWaitForSingleObject does not propagate the calling stack to the worker thread. This allows code to lose the calling stack and thereby to elevate its security privileges.

Caution

Using UnsafeRegisterWaitForSingleObject could inadvertently open up a security hole. Code access security bases its permission checks on the permissions of all the callers on the stack. When work is queued on a thread pool thread using UnsafeRegisterWaitForSingleObject, the stack of the thread pool thread will not have the context of the actual callers. Malicious code might be able exploit this to avoid permission checks.

Using a Mutex for waitObject does not provide mutual exclusion for the callbacks because the underlying Win32 API uses the default WT_EXECUTEDEFAULT flag, so each callback is dispatched on a separate thread pool thread.

When you are finished using the RegisteredWaitHandle that is returned by this method, call its RegisteredWaitHandle.Unregister method to release references to the wait handle. We recommend that you always call the RegisteredWaitHandle.Unregister method, even if you specify true for executeOnlyOnce. Garbage collection works more efficiently if you call the RegisteredWaitHandle.Unregister method instead of depending on the registered wait handle's finalizer.
