This is a small post about refactoring lock statements in async methods.

Before refactoring we had a code like this:

lock(sync)
{
  result = methodToRefactorIntoAsync();
}

...

private object sync = new object();

Lock is bound to a thread, thus no way you to use it in async code. As an alternative you may use SemaphoreSlim class:

await sync.WaitAsync(cancellationToken);

try
{
  result = await methodAsync(cancellationToken);
}
finally
{
  sync.Release();
}

...

private SemaphoreSlim sync = new SemaphoreSlim(1, 1);
