DoWorkEventHandler Delegate

Represents the method that will handle the DoWork event. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace: System.ComponentModel
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

public delegate void DoWorkEventHandler (
	Object sender,
	DoWorkEventArgs e
)
/** @delegate */
public delegate void DoWorkEventHandler (
	Object sender, 
	DoWorkEventArgs e
)
Not applicable.

Parameters

sender

The source of the event.

e

A DoWorkEventArgs that contains the event data.

When you create a DoWorkEventHandler delegate, you identify the method that will handle the event. To associate the event with your event handler, add an instance of the delegate to the event. The event-handler method is called whenever the event occurs, unless you remove the delegate. For more information about event-handler delegates, see Events and Delegates.

NoteNote:

The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this class has the following Resources property value: SharedState. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the DoWorkEventHandler delegate to handle the DoWork event. For a full code listing, see How to: Run an Operation in the Background.

private void backgroundWorker1_DoWork(object sender, DoWorkEventArgs e)
{
    // Do not access the form's BackgroundWorker reference directly.
    // Instead, use the reference provided by the sender parameter.
    BackgroundWorker bw = sender as BackgroundWorker;

    // Extract the argument.
    int arg = (int)e.Argument;

    // Start the time-consuming operation.
    e.Result = TimeConsumingOperation(bw, arg);

    // If the operation was canceled by the user, 
    // set the DoWorkEventArgs.Cancel property to true.
    if (bw.CancellationPending)
    {
        e.Cancel = true;
    }
}
