I'm developing an IntelliJ-idea plugin and want to run code in background task (visible in the background tasks dialog and in another thread than the UI).
I found the following Helper class and tried it by passing a Runnable object and implement its run method but it still blocking the UI and when I tried to do the threading myself i got the following error
Read access is allowed from event dispatch thread or inside read-action only (see com.intellij.openapi.application.Application.runReadAction())
