Remarks

If you are using a class that implements the Event-based Asynchronous Pattern Overview, the class will provide a MethodNameCompleted event. If you add an instance of the System.ComponentModel.AsyncCompletedEventHandler delegate to the event, you will receive information about the outcome of asynchronous operations in the AsyncCompletedEventArgs parameter of the corresponding event-handler method.

The client application's event-handler delegate can check the Cancelled property to determine if the asynchronous task was cancelled.

The client application's event-handler delegate can check the Error property to determine if an exception occurred during execution of the asynchronous task.

If the class supports multiple asynchronous methods, or multiple calls to the same asynchronous method, you can determine which task raised the MethodNameCompleted event by checking the value of the UserState property. Your code will need to track these tokens, known as task IDs, as their corresponding asynchronous tasks start and complete.

Notes to Inheritors

Classes that follow the Event-based Asynchronous Pattern can raise events to alert clients about the status of pending asynchronous operations. If the class provides a MethodNameCompleted event, you can use the AsyncCompletedEventArgs to tell clients about the outcome of asynchronous operations.

You may want to communicate to clients more information about the outcome of an asynchronous operation than an AsyncCompletedEventArgs accommodates. In this case, you can derive your own class from the AsyncCompletedEventArgs class and provide additional private instance variables and corresponding read-only public properties. Call the RaiseExceptionIfNecessary() method before returning the property value, in case the operation was canceled or an error occurred.
