AtomicLock<T> Class


The AtomicLock<T> class is a thread-safe structure designed to encapsulate a value and provide atomic operations on it. This class ensures that operations on the encapsulated value are performed safely in a multithreaded environment, preventing race conditions and ensuring consistency.


  • Thread-Safety: Ensures that all operations on the value are thread-safe.
  • Atomic Operations: Supports atomic operations like increment (++), decrement (--), and basic comparison operators.
  • Flexibility: Allows executing custom operations on the value through a provided delegate.
  • Easy to Use: Designed with simplicity in mind, offering an intuitive API.


Instantiation - Example 1

AtomicLock<int> atomicInt = new AtomicLock<int>(initialValue);

Instantiation - Example 2

AtomicLock<int> atomicInt = 0;

Performing Atomic Operations

atomicInt++;  // Atomic increment
atomicInt--;  // Atomic decrement
// And a lot of other pre-defined operations
// (Not AOT friendly - Use ExecuteOperations instead)

Executing Custom Operations

atomicInt.ExecuteOperation(x => x * 2); // Custom operation

Thread-Safe Value Update


Example code in C#

using LockType;
using static System.Console;

AtomicLock<int> locked = 0;

locked++; // <-- Thread Safe
locked++; // <-- Thread Safe



  • The class uses dynamic for some operations, which may have performance implications in certain scenarios.
  • Exception handling is integrated for runtime errors, especially for operations involving dynamic.
  • AOT developers should use ExecuteOperations Method instead of the Atomic Operations.
  • Accessing the value by casting it to the original type is possible, but could not be thread safe.
