Task.FromResult(TResult) Task.FromResult(TResult) Task.FromResult(TResult) Task.FromResult(TResult) Method

Definition

Creates a Task<TResult> that's completed successfully with the specified result.

public:
generic <typename TResult>
 static System::Threading::Tasks::Task<TResult> ^ FromResult(TResult result);
public static System.Threading.Tasks.Task<TResult> FromResult<TResult> (TResult result);
static member FromResult : 'Result -> System.Threading.Tasks.Task<'Result>
Public Shared Function FromResult(Of TResult) (result As TResult) As Task(Of TResult)
Type Parameters
TResult

The type of the result returned by the task.

Parameters
result
TResult TResult TResult TResult

The result to store into the completed task.

Returns

The successfully completed task.

Examples

The following example is a command-line utility that calculates the number of bytes in the files in each directory whose name is passed as a command-line argument. Rather than executing a longer code path that instantiates a FileStream object and retrieves the value of its FileStream.Length property for each file in the directory, the example simply calls the FromResult method to create a task whose Task<TResult>.Result property is zero (0) if a directory has no files.

Remarks

This method creates a Task<TResult> object whose Task<TResult>.Result property is result and whose Status property is RanToCompletion. The method is commonly used when the return value of a task is immediately known without executing a longer code path. The example provides an illustration.

To create a Task object that does not return a value, retrieve the Task object from the CompletedTask property.
