sender As Object, e As DoWorkEventArgs) _
Handles backgroundWorker1.DoWork

   ' Do not access the form's BackgroundWorker reference directly.
   ' Instead, use the reference provided by the sender parameter.
   Dim bw As BackgroundWorker = CType( sender, BackgroundWorker )
   
   ' Extract the argument.
   Dim arg As Integer = Fix(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 Then
      e.Cancel = True
   End If
