C# Advanced Async – Getting progress reports, cancelling tasks, and more

Now that we know how to do the basics in async, let us take it to the next level. In this video, we look at how to get status reports back from asynchronous tasks so we can display a progress bar and more to the screen while they are running. We also set up the ability to cancel a long-running or hung asynchronous task.

We will also explore the differences between adding tasks in a foreach loop vs Parallel.foreach and how we can even get the benefits of both methods at the same time.
