    Succint, valuable, and well presented.

    Some may say that Channel 9 for them is all about "getting to know personalities at Microsoft". Well, I'll trade all of that for training.

    This content is what Channel 9 offers me, and I thank you for it.

    Very informative. This solved exactly the problem I was having, as I had never created a multithreaded app.  I appreciate the verbosity you went into to describe in detail how to implement and return event functionality as well.  Thanks!

    Handy stuff.

    Although I know it would be easy to do, it would have been nice had the progress bar been used to show database load progress as well.

    I know it's been a while since I did this screencast, but I have posted the code here.  I am glad this helped some folks.  Thanks for the feedback.

    What I found interesting is that in the following statement there is no break instruction and the background worker breaks it whatsoever.

    private void backgroundWorker1_DoWork(object sender, DoWorkEventArgs e)
    {
        for (int i = 1; i <= 10; i++)
        {
            if (backgroundWorker1.CancellationPending)
            {
                e.Cancel = true;
            }
            else
            {
                backgroundWorker1.ReportProgress(i * 10);
                Thread.Sleep(1000);
            }
        }
    }

    Hi
    I noticed that this video is no longer working on this site.  Is there anyway you can get this video to be functional again?
    thanks
