public class InstanceState

The InstanceState type exposes the following members


Public Method InstanceState()


Public Property Code System.Int32

Gets and sets the property Code.

The state of the instance as a 16-bit unsigned integer.

The high byte is all of the bits between 2^8 and (2^16)-1, which equals decimal values between 256 and 65,535. These numerical values are used for internal purposes and should be ignored.

The low byte is all of the bits between 2^0 and (2^8)-1, which equals decimal values between 0 and 255.

The valid values for instance-state-code will all be in the range of the low byte and they are:

  • 0 : pending

  • 16 : running

  • 32 : shutting-down

  • 48 : terminated

  • 64 : stopping

  • 80 : stopped

You can ignore the high byte value by zeroing out all of the bits above 2^8 or 256 in decimal.
