AsyncInfo.Run<TResult> Method (Func<CancellationToken, Task<TResult>>)

.NET Framework 4.5

Creates and starts a Windows Runtime asynchronous operation by using a function that generates a started task that returns results. The task can support cancellation.

Namespace:  System.Runtime.InteropServices.WindowsRuntime
Assembly:  System.Runtime.WindowsRuntime (in System.Runtime.WindowsRuntime.dll)
public static IAsyncOperation<TResult> Run<TResult>(
	Func<CancellationToken, Task<TResult>> taskProvider

Type Parameters


The type that returns the result.


Type: System.Func<CancellationToken, Task<TResult>>

A delegate that represents the function that creates and starts the task. The started task is represented by the Windows Runtime asynchronous operation that is returned. The function is passed a cancellation token that the task can monitor to be notified of cancellation requests; you can ignore the token if your task does not support cancellation.

Return Value

Type: IAsyncOperation<TResult>
A started Windows.Foundation.IAsyncOperation<TResult> instance that represents the task that is generated by taskProvider.

taskProvider is null.


taskProvider returns an unstarted task.

This method passes a cancellation token to the function that is specified by taskProvider. This token provides a connection between Windows Runtime cancellation and .NET Framework task cancellation; if the action is canceled, the task is canceled. If your task does not support cancellation, ignore the token.
