DataflowBlock.ReceiveAsync<TOutput> Method (ISourceBlock<TOutput>, TimeSpan)
Asynchronously receives a value from a specified source, observing an optional time-out period.
Assembly: System.Threading.Tasks.Dataflow (in System.Threading.Tasks.Dataflow.dll)
public static Task<TOutput> ReceiveAsync<TOutput>( this ISourceBlock<TOutput> source, TimeSpan timeout )
The type of data contained in the source.
- Type: System.Threading.Tasks.Dataflow.ISourceBlock<>
The source from which to receive the value.
- Type: System.TimeSpan
The maximum time interval, in milliseconds, to wait for the synchronous operation to complete, or an interval that represents -1 milliseconds to wait indefinitely.
Return ValueType: System.Threading.Tasks.Task<>
A task that represents the asynchronous receive operation. When a value is successfully received from the source, the returned task is completed and its Result returns the value. If a value cannot be retrieved because the time-out expired, the returned task is canceled. If the value cannot be retrieved because the source is empty and completed, an InvalidOperationException exception is thrown in the returned task.
