    Basic Threading Problem

    I just want a label to show a loading message before executing a bunch of code. I wrote this:
    Code:
            private void LoadQueue()
            {
                displayRangeAuditLabel.Visible = false;
                sortByComboBox.Visible = false;
                showLateCheckBox.Visible = false;
                lblQueueLoading.Visible = true;
    
                if (LoadingThread != null && LoadingThread.IsAlive) LoadingThread.Abort();
    
                LoadingThread = new Thread(new ThreadStart(BindAuditQueue));
                LoadingThread.Start();
            }
    This works and displays my label about half the time - the other half, it only grays out the background area of the label. I suck at threads. What's wrong?

    You need to show a more complete code snippet. The code you posted is missing the BindAuditQueue thread proc implementation.

    Also, if you use [code] and [/code] tags, it will preserve formatting (I have modified your original post to include these).
