What is the use of Monitor in C#?

 Posted by Raja on 4/8/2008 | Category: C# Interview questions | Views: 21706

It provides a mechanism that synchronizes access to objects.

The Monitor class controls access to objects by granting a lock for an object to a single thread. Object locks provide the ability to restrict access to a block of code, commonly called a critical section. While a thread owns the lock for an object, no other thread can acquire that lock. You can also use Monitor to ensure that no other thread is allowed to access a section of application code being executed by the lock owner, unless the other thread is executing the code using a different locked object.
