IHostTask Interface

Provides methods that allow the common language runtime (CLR) to communicate with the host to manage tasks.

Method

Description

IHostTask::Alert Method

Requests that the host wake the task represented by the current IHostTask instance, so the task can be aborted.

IHostTask::GetPriority Method

Gets the thread priority level of the task represented by the current IHostTask instance.

IHostTask::Join Method

Blocks the calling task until the task represented by the current IHostTask instance completes, the specified time interval elapses, or IHostTask::Alert is called.

IHostTask::SetCLRTask Method

Associates an ICLRTask Interface instance with the current IHostTask instance.

IHostTask::SetPriority Method

Requests that the host adjust the thread priority level for the task represented by the current IHostTask instance.

IHostTask::Start Method

Requests that the host move the task represented by the current IHostTask instance from a suspended state to a live state, in which code can be executed.

The CLR calls methods defined by IHostTask to start a task, set its thread priority level, and so on.
