List of running threads by name

3 New Member
I'm looking for a way to find a specific running thread by name. I came across the System.Diagnost ics.Process.Thr eads collection but unfortunately, this collection holds ProcessThread objects which don't provide the thread's friendly name.

I expected to find something like that in System.AppDomai n. But while there is a CurrentThread property, this class lacks any sort of collection for all running threads.

I am pretty sure that there's something like what I'm looking for. However, the debugger is able to display friendly names for each thread and so is e.g. CodeSite.

Does anybody know a hook within .NET 2.0 where to find a list of running threads with friendly names?

Try System.Diagnost ics.Process.Get CurrentProcess. Threads...

Hope that this helps.

I've come across that hook already. Unfortunately, this collection returns instances of type "ProcessThr ead" and this class doesn't hold the thread's name.

Maybe there's a way to obtain the friendly name for a ProcessThread instance?

Try System.Diagnost ics.Process.Get CurrentProcess( ).ProcessName; but just seen an opinion that the name of threads can't be obtained:

The referenced article states that there might not be a way to get friendly names for unmanaged threads. That doesn't matter to me since I just need a named list of managed threads for my own AppDomain.

The ProcessName is not really what I'm looking for, though.

Sorry that I couldn't help, but found 2 more articles that may be worth a look:
