.NET Development - Calling a subroutine asynchronously and waiting for the response, part II

* This article, and all our great .NET Development documentation, Is available on the .NET Development menu

A couple of days ago, I wrote an article that showed how to run code asynchronously.

That worked as advertised, but I've since gotten the requirement to report to the user on the progress. That method won't work so well, so I developed some code using the BackgroundWorker class that does the trick.

Here's the requirement: Write a Windows form that calls a class, the class does some work that takes a while (in this case, integrating files into Dynamics). Report back to the main form periodically and allow the user to see the progress.

In our example we use a list box to report, because it's quick and easy.
