AsyncCompletedEventArgs.Cancelled AsyncCompletedEventArgs.Cancelled AsyncCompletedEventArgs.Cancelled AsyncCompletedEventArgs.Cancelled Property

Definition

Gets a value indicating whether an asynchronous operation has been canceled.

public:
 property bool Cancelled { bool get(); };
public bool Cancelled { get; }
member this.Cancelled : bool
Public ReadOnly Property Cancelled As Boolean

Property Value

true if the background operation has been canceled; otherwise false. The default is false.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates the using an AsyncOperation to track the lifetime of asynchronous operations. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the System.ComponentModel.AsyncOperationManager class.

Remarks

When the Cancelled property is true, the asynchronous operation was interrupted.

The client application's event-handler delegate should check the Cancelled property before accessing any properties in a class derived from AsyncCompletedEventArgs; otherwise, the property will raise an InvalidOperationException if the asynchronous operation was interrupted.

Notes to Inheritors

If you provide read-only properties in a derived class, be sure to call the RaiseExceptionIfNecessary() method. This prevents clients from accessing properties that are potentially not valid due to a failure in the asynchronous operation.
