Task Constructor (Action, CancellationToken)

Initializes a new Task with the specified action and CancellationToken.

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

public Task(
	Action action,
	CancellationToken cancellationToken
)

Parameters

action
Type: System.Action

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

cancellationToken
Type: System.Threading.CancellationToken

The CancellationToken that the new task will observe.

ExceptionCondition
ObjectDisposedException

The provided CancellationToken has already been disposed.

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 Task.Run(Action, CancellationToken) and TaskFactory.StartNew(Action, CancellationToken) methods. The only advantage offered by this constructor is that it allows object instantiation to be separated from task invocation.
