Example of UserState for BackgroundWorke r

I'm trying to write my first program using the backgroundworke r and am
looking for some example code.

I kow that you can use the UserState member to pass more information
back to the UI for updating on a progressChanged call, but all the
examples I've seen show the ProgressPercent age.

Could anyone point me to a UserState example on the web or show me some
quick example code?

You can use any objects as a UserState. In the following example, the
UserState is a String Array:

private void backgroundWorke r1_DoWork(objec t sender, DoWorkEventArgs e)
backgroundWorke r1.ReportProgre ss(100, new String[] { "Hello",
"World" });

private void backgroundWorke r1_ProgressChan ged(object sender,
ProgressChanged EventArgs e)
String[] str = (String[])e.UserState;

MessageBox.Show ("Percentage : " + e.ProgressPerce ntage + ", " +
str[0] + " " + str[1]);

That helps a bit....thanks.

I'm trying to send back a class to ProgressChanged and not quite sure
how to accomplish this.

I'm used to C++ on Unix and this VC++ is throwing me a bit.

Do I need to do something like this?
System::Object^ out = gcnew userClass;
//stuff some values in out
worker->ReportProgress ( 0, out);

and then try to get my values from the Object and put them in a new
userClass for use?

I'm trying to RTFM, but any help is appreciated. ;-)

Sorry... I don't write my apps with C++. I still use C#

Hi -- I have a C# application that basically has a button that executes a SQL Reader to loop thru a rather large resul set. Thru each interation of the reader object, I check to see if a file exists on the server. If it does, I update a textbox (multiline) with the missing file, update a status bar label, and a progressbar. Since this process is kind of lengthy, every 400 rows, I do a DoEvents() and TextBox.Refersh() to refresh the...

I'm using a BackgroundWorker to perform a file download from an ftp site. Per good code design practices where I separate my UI code from my core logic code (in this case my Download file method in my FileIO class) I've established Public Event in my core logic classes along with RaiseEvents (that will updated a progress bar on the UI side). This all works great when I'm NOT using Threading (BackgroundWorker), however, as soon as I...

Is there a way to immediately terminate a BackgroundWorker thread? My problem is that the BackgroundWorker starts with a call to My.Computer.FileSystem.GetFiles that can run for a very long time if it is pointing to a directory tree with many files. If the user requests cancellation during this time, the main thread can call CancelAsync and can post a "Cancellation Pending" message to the user, but the BackgroundWorker cannot respond to...

This is what I've always been wondered. Suppose I've created a class named Agent, and the Agent does some lengthy job. Of course I don't want to block the main window, so the Agent does the job in a separate thread. If the job is progressed it fires an event, and the main window handled the event by changing the value of a progress bar. The problem is that this event is fired in another thread so when the handler in the main window tries...

I have introduced a component to my solution that is throwing an exception about needing to be run in single threaded apartment mode. This component is created in an async call by a BackgroundWorker object, which seems to be on a MTA thread. Is there a way for me to get the BackgroundWorker thread to run in STA mode, or do I have to remove the BackgroundWorker and hand spin my own async call?
