Async.FromBeginEnd<'Arg1,'T> Method (F#)
Creates an asynchronous computation in terms of a Begin/End pair of actions in the style used in CLI APIs.
Namespace/Module Path: Microsoft.FSharp.Control
Assembly: FSharp.Core (in FSharp.Core.dll)
// Signature: static member FromBeginEnd : 'Arg1 * ('Arg1 * AsyncCallback * obj -> IAsyncResult) * (IAsyncResult -> 'T) * ?(unit -> unit) -> Async<'T> // Usage: Async.FromBeginEnd (arg, beginAction, endAction) Async.FromBeginEnd (arg, beginAction, endAction, cancelAction = cancelAction)
This overload should be used if the operation is qualified by one argument. For example, you can create an asynchronous computation for a web service call with the following code.
When the computation is run, beginFunc is executed, with a callback which represents the continuation of the computation. When the callback is invoked, the overall result is fetched using endFunc.
The computation will respond to cancellation while waiting for the completion of the operation. If a cancellation occurs, and cancelAction is specified, then it is executed, and the computation continues to wait for the completion of the operation. If cancelAction is not specified, then cancellation causes the computation to stop immediately, and subsequent invocations of the callback are ignored.
For an example, see Async.FromBeginEnd<'T> Method (F#).
