I have to write what I hope will be my last vs2003 app – just a quickie for a client. Now that I have done so much work with Whidbey, there was something that is painfully missing from .NET 1.1, the backgroundworker class component. This is for easily making asynchronous calls without having to write all the goo yourself. Thanks loads to Juval Lowy for creating a totally compatible v1.1 BackGroundWorker component (CoDe Magazine Mar/Apr 2004 issue and download the code from the www.IDesign.net website). He has written it with the same properties, methods etc so that when 2.0 RTMs, I can easily just update this little app and in the meantime, I get to use the syntax I am now quite familiar with from .NET 2.0,
