BlockingCollection<T>.Take Method ()

.NET Framework (current version)

Removes an item from the BlockingCollection<T>.

Namespace:   System.Collections.Concurrent
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public T Take()

Return Value

Type: T

The item removed from the collection.

Exception Condition

The BlockingCollection<T> has been disposed.


The underlying collection was modified outside of this BlockingCollection<T> instance, or the BlockingCollection<T> is empty and the collection has been marked as complete for adding.

A call to Take may block until an item is available to be removed.

The order in which an item is removed depends on the type of collection used to create the BlockingCollection<T> instance. When you create a BlockingCollection<T> object, you can specify the type of collection to use. For example, you could specify a ConcurrentQueue<T> object for first in, first out (FIFO) behavior, or a ConcurrentStack<T> object for last in, first out (LIFO) behavior. You can use any collection class that implements the IProducerConsumerCollection<T> interface. The default collection type for BlockingCollection<T> is ConcurrentQueue<T>.
