Thread safety question


In a 2010 project I have several backgroundwoker objects (drag and dropped on form). Each runs a continuous loop doing various tasks. Each loop contains several calls to a kernal dll: QueryPerformanceCounter. The loops repeat about every 10 ms.

Even though the code "appears" to run as expected, I am wondering if there are any thread safety issues with multiple background workers calling the same dll function?

You should not have any problem, since that function simply returns an internal value.

To make sure, enclose the call in a Try...Catch and log the exceptions somewhere. If after a while the log is empty, then you will know there is no problem.
