Do you want a Timer to trigger a BackgroundWorker?  Please elaborate.

Count up or Count down?

WinForms or WebForms?

A regular timer would probably work just as well...

Add a backgroundworker and a timer to the form.
Set the timer's interval (you can also set this in code)
In the Tick event of the timer, fire off the backgroundworker

PS> You will need to start the timer (repeatedly?) somewhere.
1. You could restart the timer when the backgroundworker completes
2. You can have the timer start based on another event (say a change in a label's text). In this case, check to see if the timer is enabled before enabling it again.
