Good Day Experts!

I have finally figured out and have my background worker operating properly.  I am not sure if there is a better way.  Can you confirm if I am doing this the best way?

My project is complete and I am adding the BGW after the fact.  

1) I put a transparent button on top of an existing button
2) On the click of the transparent button I start the BackgroundWorker
3) The BackgroundWorker DoWork contains the call to the original button click

I have 20-30 buttons I would like to utilize the BackgroundWorker on.  Is there a way to use one BackgroundWorker multiple times?  

This is my first attempt at using it and I appreciate your help.
