Session.FindObjectAsync(PersistentCriteriaEvaluationBehavior, XPClassInfo, CriteriaOperator, Boolean, AsyncFindObjectCallback) Method

Asynchronously searches for the first object which matches the specified criteria, and notifies upon completion.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpo

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpo.v21.2.dll


public object FindObjectAsync(
    PersistentCriteriaEvaluationBehavior criteriaEvaluationBehavior,
    XPClassInfo classInfo,
    CriteriaOperator criteria,
    bool selectDeleted,
    AsyncFindObjectCallback callback


Name Type Description
criteriaEvaluationBehavior PersistentCriteriaEvaluationBehavior

A PersistentCriteriaEvaluationBehavior enumeration value that specifies how the persistent criteria is evaluated.

classInfo XPClassInfo

An XPClassInfo object which contains the metadata information of the class.

criteria CriteriaOperator

A CriteriaOperator descendant which represents the criteria to match persistent objects.

selectDeleted Boolean

true to include persistent objects marked for deletion into the search; otherwise, false.

callback DevExpress.Xpo.Helpers.AsyncFindObjectCallback

A DevExpress.Xpo.Helpers.AsyncFindObjectCallback delegate to be called after the method completes.

Use callback to do the following:

  • Access the found object passed as the delegate’s result parameter, or store it for later use within the original thread.
  • Store the exception information passed as delegate’s ex parameter, and use this information later to raise the exception again, within the original thread.

Do not raise exceptions or modify persistent objects within a callback.


Type Description

An object used internally to manage an asynchronous operation.


We recommend using the FindObjectAsync(PersistentCriteriaEvaluationBehavior, XPClassInfo, CriteriaOperator, Boolean, AsyncFindObjectCallback) Task-based overload instead of this method.
