CloudQueue.BeginDelete Method

Updated: September 27, 2013

[This topic is part of the Microsoft Azure Storage Client Library 1.7, which has been deprecated. See Storage Client Library for the latest version.]

Begins an asynchronous operation to delete the queue.

Namespace: Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient
Assembly: Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient (in Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient.dll)

Dim instance As CloudQueue
Dim callback As AsyncCallback
Dim state As Object
Dim returnValue As IAsyncResult

returnValue = instance.BeginDelete(callback, state)

Public Function BeginDelete ( _
	callback As AsyncCallback, _
	state As Object _
) As IAsyncResult



Type: System.AsyncCallback

The callback delegate that will receive notification when the asynchronous operation completes.


Type: System.Object

A user-defined object that will be passed to the callback delegate.

Return Value

Type: System.IAsyncResult

An IAsyncResult that references the asynchronous operation.

The following code example illustrates using state when calling BeginDelete.

using System;
using System.Diagnostics;
using Microsoft.WindowsAzure;
using Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient;

namespace QueueAsyncExample
  public class QueueAsyncStateExample
    public CloudQueue queueObject;
    public object customStateInformation;

    // Constructor for the example state class
    public QueueAsyncStateExample( CloudQueue queue, object yourAdditionalStateObject )
      this.queueObject = queue;
      this.customStateInformation = yourAdditionalStateObject;

    // Static call that starts deleting a queue
    static void DeleteQueueAsync( CloudQueue queue, object stateObject )
      queue.BeginDelete( QueueDeleteCallback,
                         new QueueAsyncStateExample( queue, stateObject ) );

    // The callback method that is called once the create-if-not-exist operation is complete
    static void QueueDeleteCallback( IAsyncResult opResult )
      QueueAsyncStateExample state = (QueueAsyncStateExample) opResult.AsyncState;
      CloudQueue queue = state.queueObject;
      // End the BeginDelete operation
      queue.EndDelete( opResult );
      // ...other asynchronous operations could be started here if appropriate

Note that when you delete a queue, there may be an interval of time of at least 35 seconds during which you cannot create a queue with the same name.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
