Action With Progress<TProgress> Interface
Represents an asynchronous action that can report progress updates to callers. This is the return type for all Windows Runtime asynchronous methods that don't have a result object, but do report progress to callback listeners.

For example C++/WinRT code illustrating how to handle the Progress event, see Delegate types for asynchronous actions and operations.
IAsyncActionWithProgress<TProgress> is the return type for all Windows Runtime asynchronous methods that don't communicate a result object, but do enable an app to check the progress of the action. There aren't nearly as many of these as there are methods that use IAsyncAction. IAsyncAction APIs don't report progress and don't have a result.
Specifically, if you want to handle progress in .NET code, use the AsTask signature that in an extension usage has a single IProgress reference parameter. (In this usage, the progress unit is already constrained and matches the IAsyncActionWithProgress method you're using.) Provide an object that implements IProgress, and your Report method implementation is invoked each time the Windows Runtime method reports a progress notification.
To monitor the progress of the action (if not using the language-specific techniques described above), set the Progress property, providing it the name of a method that implements the AsyncActionProgressHandler; delegate.
Notes to implementers
As with calling the existing methods, there are language-specific ways to define asynchronous methods that don't use IAsyncActionWithProgress<TProgress> directly. If writing code using .NET, your method can return a Task. For C++/CX, you can use the Concurrency runtime. However, if you're defining a component, you can use Task/task internally but you must return one of the Windows Runtime interfaces for your public methods. The language-specific asynchronous support types (and many other language-specific types you might conventionally use in code) can't be used for the public surface area of a Windows Runtime component.
