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

public Task FromAsync(
	IAsyncResult asyncResult,
	Action<IAsyncResult> endMethod


Type: System.IAsyncResult

The IAsyncResult whose completion should trigger the processing of the endMethod.

Type: System.Action<IAsyncResult>

The action delegate that processes the completed asyncResult.

Return Value

Type: System.Threading.Tasks.Task

A Task that represents the asynchronous operation.

Exception Condition

The exception that is thrown when the asyncResult argument is null.


The exception that is thrown when the endMethod argument is null.


The FromAsync overloads that take an asyncResult parameter are not as efficient as the overloads that take a beginMethod parameter. If performance is an issue, use the overloads that provide the beginMethod/endMethod pattern.
