BackgroundWorker.RunWorkerAsync Method (Object)

July 28, 2014

Starts running a background operation and includes a parameter for use by the background operation.

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

public void RunWorkerAsync(
	Object argument
)

Parameters

argument
Type: System.Object
A parameter for use by the background operation in the DoWork event handler.

The RunWorkerAsync method submits a request to start the operation running asynchronously. When the request is processed, the DoWork event is raised, which in turn starts running your background operation.

If your background operation requires a parameter, you can provide it as the argument parameter to RunWorkerAsync.

If the background operation is already running, calling RunWorkerAsync again will raise an InvalidOperationException.
