TaskScheduler.QueueTask Method

Queues a Task to the scheduler.

Namespace:  System.Threading.Tasks
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

protected internal abstract void QueueTask(
	Task task


Type: System.Threading.Tasks.Task

The Task to be queued.


The task argument is null.

A class derived from TaskScheduler implements this method to accept tasks being scheduled on the scheduler.

A typical implementation would store the task in an internal data structure, which would be serviced by threads that would execute those tasks at some time in the future.

This method is only meant to be called by the .NET Framework and should not be called directly by the derived class. This is necessary for maintaining the consistency of the system.
