Sub-objective: Manage a background process by using the BackgroundWorker component.


Single answer, multiple-choice


You are an application developer for a company. You are creating a Windows application that will be used by employees of the Sales and Marketing departments to generate regional monthly sales reports. The sales data is stored in a Microsoft SQL Server 2005 database named Sales. The total number of records to be retrieved from the Sales database is displayed using a function named FetchMonthData. The FetchMonthData function accepts an argument named m_Month of Integer type. Users will specify the m_Month value using a TextBox control named txtMonth.


When your application is deployed in your production environment, users complain that reports using the FetchMonthData function take a long time to display and that the UI hangs.


You decide to execute the FetchMonthData asynchronously and add a BackgroundWorker component named BackgroundWorker1. You then add the following code to start the asynchronous operation:


Private Sub btnDisplayReport_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
 ByVal e As System.EventArgs)Handles btnDisplayReport.Click
 BackgroundWorker1.RunWorkerAsync(txtMonth.Text)
End Sub


Private Sub backgroundWorker1_DoWork(ByVal sender As Object, _
 ByVal e As DoWorkEventArgs)Handles BackgroundWorker1.DoWork
 Dim myWork As BackgroundWorker = CType(sender, BackgroundWorker)
 e.Result = FetchMonthData(e.Argument, myWork, e)
End Sub


You must display the result of FetchMonthData in a Label control named lblCount.


Which code should you use?
