Threaded Cross-Class Winform Manipulation

i
Hi,

I'm trying to get a seperate class, initialized by a form class, to
manipulate certain objects on the form (ex: add to a listbox). The
manipulation will occur via a thread that is not the normal WinForm GUI
thread. How would I go about doing this?

I have this code for cross-thread WinForm manipulation, but only from within
the WinForm class:

public delegate void LogDelegate(str ing txt);

public void Log(string txt)
{
if (InvokeRequired )
{
Invoke(new LogDelegate(Log ), txt);
return;
}

lstLog.Items.In sert(0, DateTime.Now.To String("T") + " - " + txt);
}

Thanks,
Ian

You'd do it in exactly the same way as the above, but using form.Invoke
and form.ListLog or however you want to expose the ListBox to other
classes. Of course, you could make sure that the only thing which has
access to the controls is the form class itself, and just give
thread-safe ways of performing certain operations (as you have above).
Personally, I think that's generally preferable to letting other
objects manipulate the UI, but it depends on the situation.

Hello, I'm having a strange problem. I've got a .NET web app which uses Session variables. Sometime, not all the time, they get cross threaded...that is...one user will have another user's Session variable(s) data assigned to them. I can't figure out why. I've read that other people are having this problem too but I haven't found a resolution yet. Can someone please tell me how I might go about fixing this? Thanks
