DispatchedAttribute.FireAndForget Property


When the aspect is applied to a void non-async method, this property determines whether the caller will continue immediately after enqueuing the call to the target method, without waiting for the method to complete. The default value is false.

public bool FireAndForget { get; set; }
Property Value
Type Description

true if the target method must be invoked asynchronously, or false if the target method must be invoked synchronously, that is, if the caller must wait for the dispatched method to complete.


Methods that have a non-void return type or ref or out parameters cannot be dispatched asynchronously.
