Windows Forms BackgroundWorker

Windows Forms BackgroundWorker: Async Programming in C#
Windows Forms BackgroundWorker: Async Programming in C#

Look at a Windows Forms application and the implications of doing work on a background thread. The user experiences a frozen user interface if you block the main thread, the thread updating the UI and processing events. The user experience is improved by keeping the user interface interactive by moving the long-running code onto a background thread with the BackgroundWorker component. Also look at the thread-safe way of making user interface updates.
