task Class (Concurrency Runtime)
The Parallel Patterns Library (PPL) task class. A task object represents work that can be executed asynchronously, and concurrently with other tasks and parallel work produced by parallel algorithms in the Concurrency Runtime. It produces a result of type _ResultType on successful completion. Tasks of type task<void> produce no result. A task can be waited upon and canceled independently of other tasks. It can also be composed with other tasks using continuations(then), and join(when_all) and choice(when_any) patterns.
The result type of this task.
The type of the result an object of this class produces.
Overloaded. Returns the result this task produced. If the task is not in a terminal state, a call to get will wait for the task to finish. This method does not return a value when called on a task with a result_type of void.
Determines whether the task unwraps a Windows Runtime IAsyncInfo interface or is descended from such a task.
Determines if the task is completed.
Returns the scheduler for this task
Overloaded. Adds a continuation task to this task.
Waits for this task to reach a terminal state. It is possible for wait to execute the task inline, if all of the tasks dependencies are satisfied, and it has not already been picked up for execution by a background worker.
Overloaded. Determines whether two task objects represent different internal tasks.
Overloaded. Replaces the contents of one task object with another.
Overloaded. Determines whether two task objects represent the same internal task.
