IHostCrst Interface

Serves as the host's representation of a critical section for threading.


Method Description
Enter Method Enters the critical section.
Leave Method Leaves the critical section.
SetSpinCount Method Sets the spin count for the critical section.
TryEnter Method Attempts to enter the critical section, and reports success or failure immediately.


IHostCrst allows the common language runtime (CLR) to communicate directly with the host's representation of a critical section, rather than using Win32 functions such as EnterCriticalSection or LeaveCriticalSection.
