Stop service by the daemon's own executable.
« on: April 21, 2021, 05:44:13 pm »
I don't know if the title was clear enough, but I will try to explain it better now, I have a service (daemon) and then I would like to stop or pause this service, but I want to do this for them myself, I tried to add a SimpleIPCServer and send a message, but it doesn’t work, has anyone been through this and could help me?

Actually, the provided example does what you need.
Note the Daemon itself needs a controller, because it has no GUI interaction.
See packages/fcl-extra/examples

If that is not what you mean, you CAN make a daemon (or service in Windows speak) terminate itself based on a certain condition or timer, but it is not clear to me what you mean.

I will try to explain better, I want to interact with the service, but not through the windows control, I want to interact through my application, so I tried to use the simpleipcserver, I will set up an example, to try to explain better.

Here is an example of what I’m trying to do, I believe it’s easier to understand.

hi
You could setup a tcp server in your daemon and just communicate with that. I think Synapse would be a good choice, not much overhead...
Have a look at the Echo example...
just my 2 cents

If it ain't broke, don't fix it ;)
