Session.FindObjectAsync<ClassType>(PersistentCriteriaEvaluationBehavior, CriteriaOperator, AsyncFindObjectCallback) Method

Asynchronously searches for the first object which matches the specified criteria and has the type designated by the generic type parameter, and notifies upon completion.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpo

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpo.v20.1.dll


public object FindObjectAsync<ClassType>(
    PersistentCriteriaEvaluationBehavior criteriaEvaluationBehavior,
    CriteriaOperator criteria,
    AsyncFindObjectCallback callback
Public Function FindObjectAsync(Of ClassType)(
    criteriaEvaluationBehavior As PersistentCriteriaEvaluationBehavior,
    criteria As CriteriaOperator,
    callback As AsyncFindObjectCallback
) As Object


Name Type Description
criteriaEvaluationBehavior PersistentCriteriaEvaluationBehavior

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

criteria CriteriaOperator

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

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 Parameters



Type Description

An object used internally to manage an asynchronous operation.


We recommend using the FindObjectAsync<ClassType>(PersistentCriteriaEvaluationBehavior, CriteriaOperator, CancellationToken) Task-based overload instead of this method.
