I need to check in my C# code in my web app if a windows service is started or not and then show an image for start and stop based on that.  Any idea what syntax I can use to check if it is started based on a service name?

I hope you have all neccessary permission for that.

use ServiceControl class for that.

For that you have to add System.ServiceProcess assembly refrence.
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.serviceprocess.servicecontroller.aspx

System.ServiceProcess.ServiceController controller = new System.ServiceProcess.ServiceController("name of the service")
            controller.Status.ToString();

Open in new window
