    You can make use of Action Delegate to achieve your requirement like below

    First Create a method like below in your page

     Public Sub DisplayMessage()
        End Sub

    now assign this method to Delegate and then call Run method in task to execute it

      Dim t As Action = New Action(AddressOf DisplayMessage)
            'Execute the method

    Hi fazioliamboina

    As a2h suggested, you could use Action delegate. Action delegate didn’t return a value.

    The usage of it as below:

     protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
                Action<string> t = ShowWindowsMessage;
                // Execute the method
              void ShowWindowsMessage(string message)
                TextBox1.Text = message;
