TaskFactory<TResult>.StartNew Method (Func<TResult>)
[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]
Creates and starts a task.
public Task<TResult> StartNew(
- Type: System.Func<TResult>
A function delegate that returns the future result to be available through the task.
Calling StartNew is functionally equivalent to creating a task by using one of the Task<TResult> constructors, and then calling the Start method to schedule it for execution.
However, unless creation and scheduling must be separated, StartNew is the recommended approach for both simplicity and performance.
