BackgroundWorker.RunWorkerAsync Method (Object)
Starts running a background operation and includes a parameter for use by the background operation.
Assembly: System (in System.dll)
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.
