C#.NET Background File Downloader

About a week ago I published A FileDownloader class written in VB.Net. This class enables you to easily download multiple files in the background (via a separate thread), and will provide information about the amount of downloaded data, the percentage of completion, and the download speed. On top of this, you can cancel downloading, pause it, and of course also resume.

Yesterday I started working on a C# Implementation of this class, with as goal to both increase my C# knowledge, and mess around with WPF (which is used for the demo app). I had a lot of fun creating this new version, and definitely learned a lot. It’s completely finished, documented and tested, except for 1 small WPF issue. I’m hoping to release the class tomorrow, but can already provide you with a preview screenshot:
