Name

ThreadPriority

Synopsis

This enumeration encapsulates the various thread priorities. Threads are scheduled to be executed based on their priority; they default to Normal priority. The runtime can also update thread priorities if a program window is moved between the foreground and background. This is done automatically when you create windowed applications.

public enum ThreadPriority {
   Lowest = 0,
   BelowNormal = 1,
   Normal = 2,
   AboveNormal = 3,
   Highest = 4
}
