TaskFactory<TResult>.StartNew Method (Func<TResult>)

July 28, 2014

Creates and starts a task.

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

public Task<TResult> StartNew(
	Func<TResult> function
)

Parameters

function
Type: System.Func<TResult>
A function delegate that returns the future result to be available through the task.

Return Value

Type: System.Threading.Tasks.Task<TResult>
The started task.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

The function argument is null.

Calling StartNew is functionally equivalent to creating a task by using one of the Task<TResult> constructors, and then calling the Start method to schedule it for execution.

However, unless creation and scheduling must be separated, StartNew is the recommended approach for both simplicity and performance.
