public class PingWorker : ThreadWorker

PingWorker is an implementation of the abstract ThreadWorker class, which performs work in a background thread allowing your foreground GUI to continue interacting with a user. Results are returned via a callback routine that is invoked when you poll for completed items.

See the remarks for ThreadManager for a comprehensive discussion of how to wire up and use ThreadWorkers.

Since CleanCode 0.9.07.


To use this class you will need to define a callback routine to process results as they become available.
private void MyUpdater(string ip, string msg, IPStatus ipStatus)
{ . . . }
This method is then identified as a delegate to the PingWorker.
PingWorker.PingUpdater pingCallback =
    new PingWorker.PingUpdater(MyUpdater);
Next you instantiate an object with the necessary specifications and tell the ThreadManager about it.
pingWorker = new PingWorker(pingCallback, timeout);
threadManager.Run(); // start threads
After you have prepared all of your ThreadWorker objects, you tell the ThreadManager to start them.
Finally, you will need to periodically poll for results with this method, which invokes your delegate as needed.
