Waiting for async delegate

Sometimes you want to create a task that you want to start as async but you want to track its status at a later date. The problem is that a task created this way will appear to have completed, and you’ll never know if it faulted or not. One solution is use a Func and  Unwrap the resulting task.

t = Task.Factory.StartNew(new Func<Task>(async () =>


while (true)


await Task.Delay(1000);

throw new ArgumentNullException();


value = 1;
