Name

ManualResetEvent

Synopsis

This class is a WaitHandle with two states: signaled and nonsignaled. If nonsignaled, waiting threads block. If signaled, they continue executing. It is constructed with an initial signal value and can be Set() to signaled or Reset() to nonsignaled. Once signaled, you must manually (hence the name of this type) call Reset() to revert it to nonsignaled.
