Hello guys!

I have a program that uses some threads at the same time that retrieve a page, wait for response, parse the response and then save the data in a DB using Sqlite.

Now when i want to close my program and there are these threads running it takes some time so it closes. how can i abort the page retrieval or the DB update/insert when i need to close my program, quickly?

Use the asynchronous reader execute methods (BeginExecuteReader/EndExecuteReader instead of ExecuteReader, for instance).

I would say hide the form until the operation is completed and then close it. This would be adequate if the wait is at most a few seconds and then intend is to make it appears responsive...

BackgroundWorker can also be used and cancelled... Assuming that you can check for cancellation often enought, then the background task would be cancelled soon.

If you have a single long operation, then you might consider splitting that operation into multiple ones...
