Communication between classes - message queues, etc.?

I have a main windows form that is instantiating a class and calling a method. How can I pass a message from the class to the form so that I can notify the user, obtain a response and then send the response to the class method that is still in execution?

I am looking at message queues, but from the MSDN documentation, I would need WINNT to be able to use the queue. Also, I would like the program to work without having to install Message Queueing.

Any suggestions?

Ahhh... The answer was in front of my nose all the time! I didn't even think of using events! Thank you so much!

The post doesn't cover one area though: How can I pass a value back from the form while the other class is executing a method?

That is to say:
  -form launches class
  -class fires event
  -form gets user response
  -form sends response back to class method that is still running and awaiting a response.

Thanks again!

;-) Properties on an event arg class are by reference.  This means that after the class has fired the event and the form has processed the event (during the processing the form updates a property on the event arg class), the class can access the property on the event args class and use it!  Cool huh? ;-)
