System.Object

Namespace:  System.Windows.Threading
Assembly:  WindowsBase (in WindowsBase.dll)
public abstract class DispatcherObject

The DispatcherObject type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Protected methodDispatcherObjectInitializes a new instance of the DispatcherObject class.
Top
  NameDescription
Public propertyDispatcherGets the Dispatcher this DispatcherObject is associated with.
Top
  NameDescription
Public methodCheckAccessDetermines whether the calling thread has access to this DispatcherObject.
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodVerifyAccessEnforces that the calling thread has access to this DispatcherObject.

Only the thread that the Dispatcher was created on may access the DispatcherObject directly. To access a DispatcherObject from a thread other than the thread the DispatcherObject was created on, call Invoke or BeginInvoke on the Dispatcher the DispatcherObject is associated with.

Subclasses of DispatcherObject that need to enforce thread safety can do so by calling VerifyAccess on all public methods. This guarantees the calling thread is the thread that the DispatcherObject was created on.

A DispatcherObject cannot be independently instantiated; that is, all constructors are protected.

Objects that derive from DispatcherObject have thread affinity.

Objects that derive from Freezable are free-threaded when they are frozen. For more information, see the Freezable Objects Overview.

Any public static members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.

This object can be accessed only from the thread on which it was created. Attempts to access it from other threads will throw an InvalidOperationException. Invoke or BeginInvoke provide support for marshalling work to the correct thread.
