    cross thread problem

    I have a cross thread error when i try to run my app. Here's basically how my class files interact with each other:

    I have 3 files:

    In control.cs is a function that checks for user input. When i press the L on my keyboard then control.cs see's this and calls a function in main.cs which then calls a function in gui.cs. In gui.cs i try to add a control back onto the main.cs form. But that's where i get the cross thread error.

    Like this:
    control.cs -> main.cs -> gui.cs

    Then inside of gui.cs i have something like:

    main.Controls.Add ( myWindow );

    Which appearently isn't allowed to do it like that. Anyone any idea what i could try to solve this??

    Re: cross thread problem

    You cannot access a control from a thread that did not create it in the first place. You will have to check for InvokeRequired. If that is true, you need to invoke the method which adds/manipulates the control on the thread that created it.
