ConcurrentExclusiveSchedulerPair.ExclusiveScheduler ConcurrentExclusiveSchedulerPair.ExclusiveScheduler ConcurrentExclusiveSchedulerPair.ExclusiveScheduler ConcurrentExclusiveSchedulerPair.ExclusiveScheduler Property

Definition

Gets a TaskScheduler that can be used to schedule tasks to this pair that must run exclusively with regards to other tasks on this pair.

public:
 property System::Threading::Tasks::TaskScheduler ^ ExclusiveScheduler { System::Threading::Tasks::TaskScheduler ^ get(); };
public System.Threading.Tasks.TaskScheduler ExclusiveScheduler { get; }
member this.ExclusiveScheduler : System.Threading.Tasks.TaskScheduler
Public ReadOnly Property ExclusiveScheduler As TaskScheduler
Property Value

An object that can be used to schedule tasks that do not run concurrently with other tasks.

Examples

The following example shows the use of the ExclusiveScheduler property to run a writer. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the How to: Specify a Task Scheduler in a Dataflow Block topic.

// Create a ConcurrentExclusiveSchedulerPair object.
// Readers will run on the concurrent part of the scheduler pair.
// The writer will run on the exclusive part of the scheduler pair.
var taskSchedulerPair = new ConcurrentExclusiveSchedulerPair();

// Create an ActionBlock<int> object for each reader CheckBox object.
// Each ActionBlock<int> object represents an action that can read 
// from a resource in parallel to other readers.
// Specifying the concurrent part of the scheduler pair enables the 
// reader to run in parallel to other actions that are managed by 
// that scheduler.
var readerActions = 
   from checkBox in new CheckBox[] {checkBox1, checkBox2, checkBox3}
   select new ActionBlock<int>(milliseconds =>
   {
      // Toggle the check box to the checked state.
      toggleCheckBox.Post(checkBox);

      // Perform the read action. For demonstration, suspend the current
      // thread to simulate a lengthy read operation.
      Thread.Sleep(milliseconds);

      // Toggle the check box to the unchecked state.
      toggleCheckBox.Post(checkBox);
   },
   new ExecutionDataflowBlockOptions
   {
      TaskScheduler = taskSchedulerPair.ConcurrentScheduler
   });

// Create an ActionBlock<int> object for the writer CheckBox object.
// This ActionBlock<int> object represents an action that writes to 
// a resource, but cannot run in parallel to readers.
// Specifying the exclusive part of the scheduler pair enables the 
// writer to run in exclusively with respect to other actions that are 
// managed by the scheduler pair.
var writerAction = new ActionBlock<int>(milliseconds =>
{
   // Toggle the check box to the checked state.
   toggleCheckBox.Post(checkBox4);

   // Perform the write action. For demonstration, suspend the current
   // thread to simulate a lengthy write operation.
   Thread.Sleep(milliseconds);

   // Toggle the check box to the unchecked state.
   toggleCheckBox.Post(checkBox4);
},
new ExecutionDataflowBlockOptions
{
   TaskScheduler = taskSchedulerPair.ExclusiveScheduler
});

// Link the broadcaster to each reader and writer block.
// The BroadcastBlock<T> class propagates values that it 
// receives to all connected targets.
foreach (var readerAction in readerActions)
{
   broadcaster.LinkTo(readerAction);
}
broadcaster.LinkTo(writerAction);
