HttpTaskAsyncHandler Class

.NET Framework 4.6 and 4.5

Provides methods that a derived task handler class can implement in order to process an asynchronous task.


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

public abstract class HttpTaskAsyncHandler : IHttpAsyncHandler, 

The HttpTaskAsyncHandler type exposes the following members.

Protected methodHttpTaskAsyncHandlerCalled from constructors in derived classes to initialize the HttpTaskAsyncHandler class.

Public propertyIsReusableWhen overridden in a derived class, gets a value that indicates whether the task handler class instance can be reused for another asynchronous task.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodProcessRequestInfrastructure. When overridden in a derived class, provides code that handles a synchronous task.
Public methodProcessRequestAsyncWhen overridden in a derived class, provides code that handles an asynchronous task.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodIHttpAsyncHandler.BeginProcessRequestInfrastructure. Initiates asynchronous processing of a task in an HTTP task handler.
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodIHttpAsyncHandler.EndProcessRequestInfrastructure. Ends asynchronous processing of a task in an HTTP task handler.

The HttpTaskAsyncHandler class provides a simplified way to handle asynchronous tasks without having to implement the BeginProcessRequest and EndProcessRequest methods. To create a handler for an asynchronous task, you can override the ProcessRequestAsync method and implement custom task handling code.

.NET Framework

Supported in: 4.6, 4.5

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
