Hi Experts,

I would like to know how i could use this code within my class

Dim dlg As New NoParamsDelagate(AddressOf CloseConnect)
Me.Invoke(dlg)

this works within a form class but when i place this into another class i get a design time error tessling me that invoke is not a member of my class,

How can i fix this??

Cheers,

Tom

The invoke method can only be used on a form  or control.

As in MSDN : Executes the specified delegate, on the thread that owns the control's underlying window handle, with the specified list of arguments.

What are you trying to do ?

Invoke is function of Control class and can be applied to any instance of Control-derived class. It is used to call function in the context of thread which created this control. .NET control can be updated only from the thread which created it. In other classes, not derived from Control, Invoke is not necessary, because there is no thread restriction. If you have CloseConnect function in the class which is not derived from Control, just call function directly:
CloseConnect()

If you have CloseConnect function in Control-derived class, and want to invoke it from another class, you need form reference for this:

Dim dlg As New NoParamsDelagate(AddressOf form1.CloseConnect)   ' form1 is reference to form instance
form1.Invoke(dlg)

Hi TommyTwoPints;

If you are not calling the delegate from another thread then you can call it this way

    Dim dlg As New NoParamsDelagate(AddressOf CloseConnect)
    dlg()

...

    Private Sub CloseConnect()
        Console.WriteLine("Hello There I have been called")
    End Sub

Which is exactly equal to:
CloseConnect()
