Task Constructor (Action(Object), Object)

Initializes a new Task with the specified action and state.

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

new : 
        action:Action<Object> * 
        state:Object -> Task

Parameters

action
Type: System.Action(Object)

The delegate that represents the code to execute in the task.

state
Type: System.Object

An object representing data to be used by the action.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

The action argument is null.

Rather than calling this constructor, the most common way to instantiate a Task object and launch a task is by calling the static TaskFactory.StartNew(Action(Object), Object) method. The only advantage offered by this constructor is that it allows object instantiation to be separated from task invocation.
