Async and Await When Loading Data RRS feed

  • Question

  • button1.KeyDown+=async(o,n)=> {

    //This is a search function, the user will type something on

    // a textbox then in every keypress, the application will connect

    //to the database and search if the typed data has been found

    //then bind it to a gridcontrol

    var getData=Task.Run(()=> Call_To_Database_NotAsync); var result=await getData; gridcontrol.Datasource=result; }

    Is there a possibility that the grid control will contain no data at all when the user types fast and the connection to the database is slow?

  • I think that if Call_To_Database_NotAsync or server-side functions are not designed to support multiple parallel executions, then it is possible to observe undesirable effects. Find a way to cancel the requests that are obsolete.

  • Hi Dikong42,

    Why not the load the data to memory and research the data in memory.

    Best regards,
