CancellationTokenSource Constructor (Int32)

.NET Framework (current version)

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

Initializes a new instance of the CancellationTokenSource class that will be canceled after the specified delay in milliseconds.

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

public CancellationTokenSource(
	int millisecondsDelay


Type: System.Int32

The time interval in milliseconds to wait before canceling this CancellationTokenSource.

Exception Condition

millisecondsDelay is less than -1.

The countdown for the millisecondsDelay starts during the call to the constructor. When the millisecondsDelay expires, the constructed CancellationTokenSource is canceled (if it has not been canceled already).

Subsequent calls to CancelAfter will reset the millisecondsDelay for the constructed CancellationTokenSource, if it has not been canceled already.
