you can do this by using delegates.

have a look at

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/cpref/html/frlrfSystemDelegateClassTopic.asp

or simply type delegate in your visual studio and press F1

hope that helps,

1) define a delegate with the same signature as your method that will update UI
2) In worker thread create a new delegate of this type
3) use Control.Invoke to invoke the delegate in Main Thread

Note: The thread method must reach at least one member control (may be a form) to invoke the method.

Sample:
//Assume we have a text box named "m_txtMessage"

//Delegate that will be used to call the method
public delegate void MyUpdaterHandler(string newText);

private void UpdateUI(string newText)
{
  m_txtMessage.Text = newText;
}

//Your worker thread method
private void WorkerThreadMethod()
{
  //Do something in different thread
  //.....
 
  //Create a new delegate
  MyUpdaterHandler  _dlg = new MyUpdaterHandler(this.UpdateUI);

  //Invoke delegate in the thread whic created the control   txtMessage (which is Main Thread) you can also use main form instance
 
 txtMessage.Invoke(dlg, new object[]{ "Text updated in Main Thread" });
}

//UpdateUI()  method will be called on the thread that created the control "txtMessage"
