C# service - communicating with service controller app
Posted on 2004-04-19
I have an app I wrote in VB a while back that I kludged into running
as a service with srvany. I'm now re-writing this app in C# to make
it a genuine service that's more stable and has increased
I've written the service and the controller app, and I can start/stop
the service, etc. with no problems.
My question is this: is it possible for my service and my controller
app to communicate? My old application had a listbox on the main form
that showed progress notifications, etc. I would like to mimic this
behaviour, but I don't really know where to begin with passing strings
from the service to the controller application.
Can someone point me in the right direction for this?
Thanks so much!
