The operation is completed.


The operation started executing, but has not completed.


The operation is pending and is still in the Dispatcher queue.

A DispatcherOperation is returned after a call to BeginInvoke. The DispatcherOperation can be used to interact with the delegate on the Dispatcher queue, such as changing the priority of the operation or aborting the operation.

The stages of a DispatcherOperation are Pending, Executing, and Completed. At any point before the operation completes, the status can be set to Aborted.
