Property Value

IntPtr

An IntPtr representing the native operating system handle. The default is the value of the InvalidHandle field.

Attributes

Remarks

Assigning a new value to the Handle property does not close the previous handle. This can result in a leaked handle.

Do not use this property in the .NET Framework version 2.0 or later; use the SafeWaitHandle property instead. Setting this property to a valid handle also sets the SafeWaitHandle property, but setting it to InvalidHandle can result in a leaked handle.
