WindowsRuntimeSystemExtensions.AsTask<TProgress> Method (IAsyncActionWithProgress<TProgress>, CancellationToken)

.NET Framework 4.5

Returns a task that represents a Windows Runtime asynchronous action that can be cancelled.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  System.Runtime.WindowsRuntime (in System.Runtime.WindowsRuntime.dll)

public static Task AsTask<TProgress>(
	this IAsyncActionWithProgress<TProgress> source,
	CancellationToken cancellationToken
)

Type Parameters

TProgress

The type of object that provides data that indicates progress.

Parameters

source
Type: IAsyncActionWithProgress<TProgress>

The asynchronous action.

cancellationToken
Type: System.Threading.CancellationToken

A token that can be used to request cancellation of the asynchronous action.

Return Value

Type: System.Threading.Tasks.Task
A task that represents the asynchronous action.

Usage Note

In Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type IAsyncActionWithProgress<TProgress>. When you use instance method syntax to call this method, omit the first parameter. For more information, see Extension Methods (Visual Basic) or Extension Methods (C# Programming Guide).

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

source is null.

Use this method to get a Task object for a Windows Runtime asynchronous operation. Task objects simplify the coordination of asynchronous operations.

Calling this method overload is equivalent to calling the AsTask<TResult, TProgress>(IAsyncOperationWithProgress<TResult, TProgress>, CancellationToken, IProgress<TProgress>) extension method overload and specifying null for the progress parameter. This is useful when you don't want to get progress reports from an action that reports progress.
