I test an example from this article.

I wrap the logic into a console program as below, but it does not print out any message.
where is wrong? I can not figure it why:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;
using System.Threading;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using System.Diagnostics;

namespace ThreadPool01
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            Program p = new Program();

            Console.WriteLine("testing thread pool numbers:");

        private void CallFoo30AsyncTimes()
            // create a delegate of MethodInvoker
            // poiting to our Foo function.
            MethodInvoker simpleDelegate =  new MethodInvoker(Foo);

            // Calling Foo Async 30 times.
            for (int i = 0; i < 30; i++)
                // call Foo()
                simpleDelegate.BeginInvoke(null, null);

        private void Foo()
            int intAvailableThreads, intAvailableIoAsynThreds;

            // ask the number of avaialbe threads on the pool,
            //we really only care about the first parameter.
            ThreadPool.GetAvailableThreads(out intAvailableThreads, out intAvailableIoAsynThreds);

            // build a message to log
            string strMessage =
                String.Format(@"Is Thread Pool: {0}, Thread Id: {1} Free Threads {2}",
                    Thread.CurrentThread.IsThreadPoolThread.ToString(), Thread.CurrentThread.GetHashCode(), intAvailableThreads);

            // check if the thread is on the thread pool.

            // create a delay...


What I have tried:

can not figure it out in short time and seek help here.

If you're going to ask questions about an article, do in the forum at the bottom of the article.

Don't post this under Quick Answers - if you got the code from an article, then there is a "Add a Comment or Question" button at the bottom of that article, which causes an email to be sent to the author. They are then alerted that you wish to speak to them.
Posting this here relies on them "dropping by" and realising it is for them.

since that article is old post, I doubt the author would care. so I give a shot here.
thank you for your comments!
The code works (.NET 4.7.2 and Windows 10) but the output is not sent to the console, so just use:
