Overlapped Constructor (Int32, Int32, IntPtr, IAsyncResult)

Initializes a new instance of the Overlapped class with the specified file position, the handle to an event that is signaled when the I/O operation is complete, and an interface through which to return the results of the operation.

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

public Overlapped(
	int offsetLo,
	int offsetHi,
	IntPtr hEvent,
	IAsyncResult ar
)

Parameters

offsetLo
Type: System.Int32
The low word of the file position at which to start the transfer.
offsetHi
Type: System.Int32
The high word of the file position at which to start the transfer.
hEvent
Type: System.IntPtr
The handle to an event that is signaled when the I/O operation is complete.
ar
Type: System.IAsyncResult
An object that implements the IAsyncResult interface and provides status information on the I/O operation.

To get the handle of a managed synchronization object that derives from the WaitHandle class, use the WaitHandle.SafeWaitHandle property to get a SafeWaitHandle object, and then call the DangerousGetHandle method.

Your implementation of IAsyncResult provides status information on the I/O operation. Pass it to the constructor in the ar parameter, and retrieve it later with the AsyncResult property. If a callback method is specified for the Pack or UnsafePack method, the callback can retrieve your IAsyncResult by unpacking the NativeOverlapped structure it receives.
