Backgroundworker VS2008 VB - Can't get started

Backgroundworker VS2008 VB - Can't get started

Backgroundworker VS2008 VB - Can't get started



I am trying to learn about using the Backgroundworker to get a ProgressBar working.
But I can't seem to get this development effort off-the-ground.

I am using VS2008 (VB).
When I create a New Project - Web ASP.Net Application and look for the Backgroundworker object in the Toolbox, it is Greyed-out.

I have tried various things found on a web search and none of them will Enable the Backgroundworker control so that I can place it onto my Default.aspx form.

What am I doing wrong?

Any advice/suggestions you might be able to offer would be greatly appreciated.

(Note - since I am not sure which forum area might be best for this question, I will be duplicating it on the ASP.Net area as well. My apologies for the duplication)
