BroadcastBlock<T> BroadcastBlock<T> BroadcastBlock<T> BroadcastBlock<T> Class

Definition

Provides a buffer for storing at most one element at time, overwriting each message with the next as it arrives.

Remarks

Note

The TPL Dataflow Library (the System.Threading.Tasks.Dataflow namespace) is not distributed with .NET. To install the System.Threading.Tasks.Dataflow namespace in Visual Studio, open your project, choose Manage NuGet Packages from the Project menu, and search online for the System.Threading.Tasks.Dataflow package. Alternatively, to install it using the .Net Core CLI, run dotnet add package System.Threading.Tasks.Dataflow.

BroadcastBlock<T> exposes at most one element at a time. However, unlike WriteOnceBlock<T>, that element will be overwritten as new elements are provided to the block. BroadcastBlock<T> ensures that the current element is broadcast to any linked targets before allowing the element to be overwritten.

Constructors
