WorkflowApplication.BeginRun Method (AsyncCallback, Object)

.NET Framework 4.6 and 4.5

Starts or resumes a workflow instance asynchronously using the specified callback method and user-provided state.

Namespace:  System.Activities
Assembly:  System.Activities (in System.Activities.dll)

public IAsyncResult BeginRun(
	AsyncCallback callback,
	Object state


Type: System.AsyncCallback

The method to be called when the resume operation has completed.

Type: System.Object

An optional application-specific object that contains information about the asynchronous operation.

Return Value

Type: System.IAsyncResult
A reference to the asynchronous run operation.

To determine whether the run operation was successful, call EndRun. EndRun can be called from inside or outside of the method referenced in the callback parameter. If EndRun is called before the resume operation completes, it blocks until the resume operation completes. By default, the resume operation must complete in 30 seconds or a TimeoutException is thrown from EndRun.

This method starts or resumes a workflow asynchronously using the IAsyncResult asynchronous design pattern. For more information, seeAsynchronous Programming Overview.
