var collection = new BlockingCollection<int>(5); var random = new Random(); var producerTask = Task.Run(() => { for(int item=1; item<=10; item++) { collection.Add(item); Console.WriteLine("Produced: " + item); Thread.Sleep(random.Next(1...
A task can be created by directly instantiating the Task class... var task = new Task(() => { Console.WriteLine("Task code starting..."); Thread.Sleep(2000); Console.WriteLine("...task code ending!"); }); Console.WriteLine("Starting task..."); t...
var tasks = Enumerable.Range(1, 5).Select(n => new Task<int>(() => { Console.WriteLine("I'm task " + n); return n; })).ToArray(); foreach(var task in tasks) task.Start(); Task.WaitAll(tasks); foreach(var task in tasks) Console.WriteLine(task.Result); ...
var allTasks = Enumerable.Range(1, 5).Select(n => new Task<int>(() => n)).ToArray(); var pendingTasks = allTasks.ToArray(); foreach(var task in allTasks) task.Start(); while(pendingTasks.Length > 0) { var finishedTask = pendingTasks[Task.WaitAny(pendingTasks)]; Conso...

This example uses Parallel.ForEach to calculate the sum of the numbers between 1 and 10000 by using multiple threads. To achieve thread-safety, Interlocked.Add is used to sum the numbers. using System.Threading; int Foo() { int total = 0; var numbers = Enumerable.Range(1, 10000).ToLis...

When you need to pass some data from the parent task to its children tasks, so it logically flows with the execution, use AsyncLocal class: void Main() { AsyncLocal<string> user = new AsyncLocal<string>(); user.Value = "initial user"; // this does not aff...
For Each row As DataRow In FooDataTable.Rows Me.RowsToProcess.Add(row) Next Dim myOptions As ParallelOptions = New ParallelOptions() myOptions.MaxDegreeOfParallelism = environment.processorcount Parallel.ForEach(RowsToProcess, myOptions, Sub(currentRow, state) ...
Task that return a value has return type of Task< TResult > where TResult is the type of value that needs to be returned. You can query the outcome of a Task by its Result property. Task<int> t = Task.Run(() => { int sum = 0; for(int i = 0; i < 500; i++) ...
