Examples

The following example demonstrates an error that causes the system to throw a ThreadStateException.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Threading;
ref class ThreadWork
{
public:
   static void DoWork()
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "Working thread..." );
   }

};

int main()
{
   ThreadStart^ myThreadDelegate = gcnew ThreadStart( ThreadWork::DoWork );
   Thread^ myThread = gcnew Thread( myThreadDelegate );
   myThread->Start();
   Thread::Sleep( 0 );
   Console::WriteLine( "In main. Attempting to restart myThread." );
   try
   {
      myThread->Start();
   }
   catch ( ThreadStateException^ e ) 
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "Caught: {0}", e->Message );
   }

}

using System;
using System.Threading;

public class ThreadWork 
{
   public static void DoWork()
   {
      Console.WriteLine("Working thread..."); 
   }
}

class ThreadStateTest
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      ThreadStart myThreadDelegate = new ThreadStart(ThreadWork.DoWork);
      Thread myThread = new Thread(myThreadDelegate);
      myThread.Start();
      Thread.Sleep(0);
      Console.WriteLine("In main. Attempting to restart myThread.");
      try 
      {
         myThread.Start();
      }
      catch (ThreadStateException e)
      {
         Console.WriteLine("Caught: {0}", e.Message);
      }
   }
}
Imports System
Imports System.Threading

Public Class ThreadWork
   
   Public Shared Sub DoWork()
      Console.WriteLine("Working thread...")
   End Sub 'DoWork
End Class 'ThreadWork

Class ThreadStateTest
   
   Public Shared Sub Main()
      Dim myThreadDelegate As New ThreadStart(AddressOf ThreadWork.DoWork)
      Dim myThread As New Thread(myThreadDelegate)
      myThread.Start()
      Thread.Sleep(0)
      Console.WriteLine("In main. Attempting to restart myThread.")
      Try
         myThread.Start()
      Catch e As ThreadStateException
         Console.WriteLine("Caught: {0}", e.Message)
      End Try
   End Sub 'Main
End Class 'ThreadStateTest

This code produces the following output:

In main. Attempting to restart myThread.  
    Working thread...  
    Caught: Thread is running or terminated. Cannot restart.  

Remarks

Once a thread is created, it is in at least one of the ThreadState states until it terminates. ThreadStateException is thrown by methods that cannot perform the requested operation due to the current state of a thread. For example, trying to restart an aborted thread by calling Start on a thread that has terminated throws a ThreadStateException.

ThreadStateException uses the HRESULT COR_E_THREADSTATE, which has the value 0x80131520.

For a list of initial property values for an instance of ThreadStateException, see the ThreadStateException constructors.

ThreadStateException(String) ThreadStateException(String) ThreadStateException(String) ThreadStateException(String)

Initializes a new instance of the ThreadStateException class with a specified error message.

ThreadStateException(String, Exception) ThreadStateException(String, Exception) ThreadStateException(String, Exception) ThreadStateException(String, Exception)
