Task(Of TResult) Constructor (Func(Of Object, TResult), Object, CancellationToken, TaskCreationOptions)
Initializes a new Task(Of TResult) with the specified action, state, and options.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
'Declaration Public Sub New ( _ function As Func(Of Object, TResult), _ state As Object, _ cancellationToken As CancellationToken, _ creationOptions As TaskCreationOptions _ )
- Type: System.Func(Of Object, TResult)
The delegate that represents the code to execute in the task. When the function has completed, the task's Result property will be set to return the result value of the function.
- Type: System.Object
An object representing data to be used by the function.
- Type: System.Threading.CancellationToken
The CancellationToken to be assigned to the new task.
Rather than calling this constructor, the most common way to instantiate a Task(Of TResult) object and launch a task is by calling the static TaskFactory(Of TResult).StartNew(Func(Of Object, TResult), Object, CancellationToken, TaskCreationOptions, TaskScheduler) method. The only advantage offered by this constructor is that it allows object instantiation to be separated from task invocation.
