The sleep method of the thread is used to pause the thread for a specific period.

If you want to set sleep for some seconds, then use it like the following code snippet −

int sleepfor = 2000;

You can try to run the following code to implement the sleep method of the thread −


 Live Demo

using System;
using System.Threading;

namespace MyApplication {
   class ThreadCreationProgram {
      public static void CallToChildThread() {
         Console.WriteLine("Child thread starts");

         int sleepfor = 2000;

         Console.WriteLine("Child Thread Paused for {0} seconds", sleepfor / 1000);
         Console.WriteLine("Child thread resumes");

      static void Main(string[] args) {
         ThreadStart childref = new ThreadStart(CallToChildThread);
         Console.WriteLine("In Main: Creating the Child thread");

         Thread childThread = new Thread(childref);
