The InvokeOperation type exposes the following members.


Name Description
Public property CanCancel Gets a value that indicates whether this OperationBase is currently in a state that enables it to be canceled. (Inherited from OperationBase.)
Public property Error Gets the operation error if the operation failed. (Inherited from OperationBase.)
Public property HasError Gets a value that indicates whether the operation failed. (Inherited from OperationBase.)
Public property IsCanceled Gets a value that indicates whether this operation has been canceled. (Inherited from OperationBase.)
Public property IsComplete Gets a value that indicates whether this operation has completed. (Inherited from OperationBase.)
Public property IsErrorHandled Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the operation error has been handled. (Inherited from OperationBase.)
Public property OperationName Gets the name of the operation.
Public property Parameters Gets the collection of parameters to the operation.
Protected property Result Gets the DomainClientResult for this operation.
Protected property SupportsCancellation Gets a value indicating whether this operation supports cancellation. (Overrides OperationBase.SupportsCancellation.)
Public property UserState Gets the optional user state for this operation. (Inherited from OperationBase.)
Public property ValidationErrors Gets the validation errors for this operation.
Public property Value Gets the return value for the invoke operation.



Name Description
Public method Cancel Cancels the operation. (Inherited from OperationBase.)
Protected method CancelCore Invokes the cancel callback. (Overrides OperationBase.CancelCore().)
Protected method Complete(Exception) Completes a failed operation with the specified error. (Inherited from OperationBase.)
Protected method Complete(Object) Completes a successful operation with the specified result. (Inherited from OperationBase.)
Public method Equals (Inherited from Object.)
Protected method Finalize (Inherited from Object.)
Public method GetHashCode (Inherited from Object.)
Public method GetType (Inherited from Object.)
Protected method InvokeCompleteAction Invokes the completion callback. (Overrides OperationBase.InvokeCompleteAction().)
Public method MarkErrorAsHandled Specifies that an error encountered in an operation is handled. (Inherited from OperationBase.)
Protected method MemberwiseClone (Inherited from Object.)
Protected method OnPropertyChanged Called when the value of a property changes. (Inherited from OperationBase.)
Protected method RaisePropertyChanged Raises the System#ComponentModel#INotifyPropertyChanged#PropertyChanged() event. (Inherited from OperationBase.)
Public method ToString (Inherited from Object.)



Name Description
Public event Completed Occurs when the operation completes. (Inherited from OperationBase.)
