BackgroundWorker.RunWorkerAsync Method (Object)

Starts execution of a background operation.

Namespace:  System.ComponentModel
Assemblies:   System.ComponentModel.EventBasedAsync (in System.ComponentModel.EventBasedAsync.dll)
  System (in System.dll)

member RunWorkerAsync : 
        argument:Object -> unit

Parameters

argument
Type: System.Object

A parameter for use by the background operation to be executed in the DoWork event handler.

ExceptionCondition
InvalidOperationException

IsBusy is true.

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

If your 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.

The following code example demonstrates the use of the RunWorkerAsync method to start an asynchronous operation. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the BackgroundWorker class.
