Call method on a form from another thread

I am looking for a sample of how you execute/invoke a method in a form from
one thread and have it run on the thread that created the form instead of
the thread that actually made the call. The reason I need this is because
the method that gets invoked could be updating any number of GUI elements on
the form.

What would be ideal is to have the code in the thread an not the form since
I will have several of these forms.

Also, do delegates perform this action themselves? What I mean is if I
delegate is declared as part of one thread but a handler is registered by
another thread does it make sure it executes on the correct thread?

Thanks.

John Skeet has a very good article on threading in .Net, one section is
dedicated to threading issues in Windows Forms, it should answer your
questions:

Hi, I've been struggling with this today, I'm developing a DotNet2.0 website in C# that needs to call a long running data query. Obviously this is a good candidate for an Asynchronous call, so the page can carry on rendering whilst the call is taking place and also returning the ASP.NET worker thread to service another page request (for scalability). I have developed a very basic asynchronous object (for testing, that reproduces the same...

All, Not sure if this is possible or not - I've created a class which performs an asynchronous operation and provides notification when the operation is complete. I'd like the notification to be performed on the same thread thread that instantiated the class. One way to do this is to pass an ISynchronizeInvoke into the class and use it to synchronize the callback. In the constructor of the class, could I take note of the current thread...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
