ValueTask instance may either be awaited or converted to a Task using AsTask. A
ValueTask instance may only be awaited once, and consumers may not call GetAwaiter() until the instance has completed. If these limitations are unacceptable, convert the
ValueTask to a Task by calling AsTask.
The following operations should never be performed on a
- Awaiting the instance multiple times.
- Calling AsTask multiple times.
- Using more than one of these techniques to consume the instance.
If you do any of the above, the results are undefined.
ValueTask is a structure that can wrap either a Task or a IValueTaskSource instance. Returning a
ValueTask that wraps a IValueTaskSource instance from an asynchronous method enables high-throughput applications to avoid allocations by using a pool of reusable IValueTaskSource objects. For more information, see Understanding the Whys, Whats, and Whens of ValueTask.
ValueTask instead of a Task introduces some overhead. Because
ValueTask is a structure with multiple fields, returning it from the method results in copying more data compared to returning a single Task reference. As such, the default choice for any asynchronous method that does not return a result should be to return a Task. Only if performance analysis proves it worthwhile should a
ValueTask be used instead of a Task. The Task.CompletedTask property should be used to hand back a successfully completed singleton in the case where a method returning a Task completes synchronously and successfully.
The use of the
ValueTask type is supported starting with C# 7.0 and is not supported by any version of Visual Basic.
