Asynchronously executes the delegate on the thread that created this object.
Assembly: System (in System.dll)
[HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Synchronization = true, ExternalThreading = true)] IAsyncResult BeginInvoke( Delegate method, Object args )
- Type: System.Delegate
A Delegate to a method that takes parameters of the same number and type that are contained in args.
The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: Synchronization | ExternalThreading. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.
The method delegate is executed on the thread that created the object, instead of the thread on which was called.
The delegate is called asynchronously, and this method returns immediately. You can call this method from any thread. If you need the return value from a process started with this method, call EndInvoke to get the value.
If you need to call the delegate synchronously, use the Invoke method instead.
