Addressables and AsyncOperationHandle

See original GitHub issue

How do I get the AsyncOperationHandle in the current build? I’m doing the following:

TextAsset myAsset = await Addressables.LoadAssetAsync<TextAsset>("myAssetLabel");

This actually skips the step of getting the AsyncOperationHandle, which is needed when you want to call Addressables.Release(asyncOperationHandle); later.

var handle = Addressables.LoadAssetAsync<TextAsset>("myAssetLabel");
var asset = await handle;
Merglaschcommented, May 12, 2023

@neuecc , @albertogomezr91 This currently happens to me with Addressables 1.21.12

Both of these approaches

var locations = await Addressables.LoadResourceLocationsAsync(tag);

var handle = Addressables.LoadAssetAsync<TextAsset>(“myAssetLabel”); var asset = await handle;

result in this error: Cannot assign ‘void’ to an implicitly-typed local variable

The confusing thing is I can access the GetAwaiter and ToUnitask extensions on the handle, so I’d argue the UNITASK_ADDRESSABLE_SUPPORT define has to be active. Anything I am missing here?
