Keep Your UI Responsive with the BackgroundWorker Component

Long running processes are a user experience killer. How many times have you had an application "lock up" while trying to complete a task? The BackgroundWorker component in .NET allows you to spawn those long-running procedures in the background and keep your WPF, Silverlight or Windows Forms user interface responsive. We'll take a look at the features of the BackgroundWorker in a WPF application including running a background process, updating the progress in the UI, canceling the process prematurely, and handling error conditions. Some .NET experience and familiarity with C# is recommended.
