) As IAsyncAction


Type: System.Func(Of CancellationToken, Task)

A delegate that represents the function that creates and starts the task. The started task is represented by the Windows Runtime asynchronous action that is returned. The function is passed a cancellation token that the task can monitor to be notified of cancellation requests; you can ignore the token if your task does not support cancellation.

A started Windows.Foundation.IAsyncAction instance that represents the task that is generated by taskProvider.


taskProvider is Nothing.


taskProvider returns an unstarted task.

This method passes a cancellation token to the function that is specified by taskProvider. This token provides a connection between Windows Runtime cancellation and .NET Framework task cancellation; if the action is canceled, the task is canceled. If your task does not support cancellation, ignore the token.
