Return Value

true if the currently executing task has received a request for cancellation, false otherwise.


If you call this method in the body of a task and it returns true, you must respond with a call to cancel_current_task to acknowledge the cancellation request, after performing any cleanup you need. This will abort the execution of the task and cause it to enter into the canceled state. If you do not respond and continue execution, or return instead of calling cancel_current_task, the task will enter the completed state when it is done. state.

A task is not cancellable if it was created without a cancellation token.
