Task Constructor (Action<Object>, Object)

Initializes a new Task with the specified action and state.

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

public:
Task(
	Action<Object^>^ action, 
	Object^ state
)

Parameters

action
Type: System::Action<Object>

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

state
Type: System::Object

An object representing data to be used by the action.

ExceptionCondition
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 TaskFactory::StartNew(Action<Object>, Object) method. The only advantage offered by this constructor is that it allows object instantiation to be separated from task invocation.
