.NET 3.0 RC1 - Update UI Thread From Background Thread

Hello All,

Using the following delegate, and attempting to update the UI. There is no
clear examples on how to pass multiple parameters though to the dispatcher.

I keep receiving an exception (shown below). The code works if you invoke a
method that only has one parameter, however it should work with multiple
parameters. Maybe I am missing something simple.

-------------- CODE FOLLOWS --------------

Public Delegate Sub MemberChatDelegate(ByVal member As String, ByVal msg As
String)

Public Sub UpdateChat(ByVal member As String, ByVal msg As String)
' Update UI Code here
If Me.Dispatcher.CheckAccess Then
' Update UI Code
Else
Me.Dispatcher.Invoke(Windows.Threading.DispatcherP riority.Normal,
New MemberChatDelegate(AddressOf UpdateChat), New ChatMessage(member, msg),
Nothing, New Object() {member, msg})
End If
'
End Sub

-------------- EXCEPTION FOLLOWS --------------

System.Reflection.TargetParameterCountException was unhandled
