Overview

This code snippet shows how to change an asynchronous method interface to a synchronous method. This can be done with CActiveSchedulerWait.

There are two different synchronous methods:

  • CMyClass::DoAsynchronousL() uses CActiveSchedulerWait for waiting for the asynchronous method that completes with CMyClass::AsyncComplete()
  • CMyClass::DoAsynchronousWithStatusL() uses CActiveSchedulerWait for waiting for the asynchronous method that has TRequestStatus in its interface. The method completes with CMyClass::RunL().

For more information on using CActiveSchedulerWait, see article CS000982 - Using CActiveSchedulerWait

The following capabilities and libraries are required:

CAPABILITY None
LIBRARY euser.lib

Header

#include <e32base.h>
 
// for CSomeAsyncClass
class MAsynchIF
{
public:
void AsyncComplete(TInt aResult);
};
 
class CMyClass : public CActive, MAsynchIF
{
public:
static CMyClass* NewLC();
virtual ~CMyClass();
 
// Synchronous methods
TInt DoAsynchronousL();
TInt DoAsynchronousWithStatusL();
 
private: // From MAsynchIF (CSomeAsyncClass)
void AsyncComplete(TInt aResult);
 
private: // From CActive
void RunL();
void DoCancel();
 
private:
CSomeAsyncClass* iSomeAsyncClass;
CActiveSchedulerWait iSchedulerWait;
TInt iResult;
};

void CMyClass::AsyncComplete(TInt aResult)
{
iResult = aResult;
iSchedulerWait.AsyncStop();
}
 
// This is an synchronous method even though it calls an asynchronous interface that
// completes with CMyClass::RunL() because it uses TRequestStatus as
// a parameter

// by CSomeAsyncClass.
}
else
{
User::Leave(KErrNotReady);
}
return iResult;
}
 
void CMyClass::RunL()
{
// This is called when DoAsynchronousWithStatusL() completes
iResult = iStatus.Int();
iSchedulerWait.AsyncStop();
}
 
void CMyClass::DoCancel()
{
// This cancels the DoAsynchronousWithStatusL() method
iResult = KErrCancel;
iSchedulerWait.AsyncStop();
}

Postconditions

The asynchronous methods looks like a synchronous method.
