This lesson describes the ServiceController control
This component represents a Windows service process, and provides methods that let you connect to a running or stopped service to control it or get information about it.
The ServiceController component's ServiceName property gets or sets the name of the service associated with the component.
To set this value at design time, select a ServiceController in the form designer. Then, click the ServiceName property in the Properties window and click the dropdown arrow on the right to see a list of available services on the system.
The class's methods let you start, pause, continue, or stop the service.
Note: this is a fairly advanced and specialized topic, so it is not covered in detail here. For more info on ServiceController class you can check the following article: ServiceController Class
