 static System::Threading::Tasks::Task<System::Threading::Tasks::Task ^> ^ WhenAny(System::Collections::Generic::IEnumerable<System::Threading::Tasks::Task ^> ^ tasks);
public static System.Threading.Tasks.Task<System.Threading.Tasks.Task> WhenAny (System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<System.Threading.Tasks.Task> tasks);

Public Shared Function WhenAny (tasks As IEnumerable(Of Task)) As Task(Of Task)

Parameters

tasks
IEnumerable<Task>

The tasks to wait on for completion.

Returns

Task<Task>

A task that represents the completion of one of the supplied tasks. The return task's Result is the task that completed.

Exceptions

The tasks argument was null.

The tasks array contained a null task, or was empty.

Remarks

The returned task will complete when any of the supplied tasks has completed. The returned task will always end in the RanToCompletion state with its Result set to the first task to complete. This is true even if the first task to complete ended in the Canceled or Faulted state.
