IAsyncResult.CompletedSynchronously Property


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Gets a value that indicates whether the asynchronous operation completed synchronously.

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

bool CompletedSynchronously { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the asynchronous operation completed synchronously; otherwise, false.

If the synchronous completion of the call is detected in the AsyncCallback delegate, it is probable that the thread that initiated the asynchronous operation is the current thread.

Notes to Implementers:

Most implementers of the IAsyncResult interface will not use this property and should return false. Beginning with the .NET Framework 4.5, a task that is created with the FromAsync method will not complete if this property is not implemented correctly. See Application Compatibility in the .NET Framework 4.5.

Notes to Callers:

Use this property to determine if the asynchronous operation completed synchronously. For example, this property can return true for an asynchronous I/O operation if the I/O request was small.
