Multiple threads and lock synchronization to method

Posted on 2011-10-08

If I create a thread which runs SomeMethod below, and then create 5 more threads which try to run SomeMethod below before thread #1 is finished, am I guaranteed that the threads will run in the order they were created?

That is, after the first thread finishes with SomeMethod, is it random chance who the next thread will be who gets to run SomeMethod? Or am I guaranteed that it will be the "next in line" thread, that is, the 2nd thread I created, followed by the 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th thread.
private static object lockObject = new Object();

public static SomeMethod()
       //do your stuff

No...the order of thread creation does NOT guarantee they will be run in that order.
