BackgroundWorker.ReportProgress Method (Int32)

Raises the ProgressChanged event.

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

'Declaration
Public Sub ReportProgress ( _
	percentProgress As Integer _
)

Parameters

percentProgress
Type: System.Int32
The percentage, from 0 to 100, of the background operation that is completed.

ExceptionCondition
InvalidOperationException

The WorkerReportsProgress property is set to false.

If you need the background operation to report on its progress, you can call the ReportProgress method to raise the ProgressChanged event. The WorkerReportsProgress property value must be true, or ReportProgress will throw an InvalidOperationException.

It is up to you to implement a meaningful way of measuring your background operation's progress as a percentage of the total task completed.

The following code example demonstrates the use of the ReportProgress method to report the progress of a background operation to the user. To view the complete code for this sample, see How to: Use a Background Worker.


Private Sub bw_DoWork(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As DoWorkEventArgs)
    Dim worker As BackgroundWorker = CType(sender, BackgroundWorker)

    For i = 1 To 10
        If bw.CancellationPending = True Then
            e.Cancel = True
            Exit For
        Else
            ' Perform a time consuming operation and report progress.
            System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(500)
            bw.ReportProgress(i * 10)
        End If
    Next
End Sub
