Hello all. Morning question...
I have the main thread running my main form. I use a backgroundworker when user click button to use a webservice that controls european VAT. my code is:

//...
MBForm.Showdialog() // form whre is shown the progress of the webservice running on the Background Thread
Backgroundworker.RunWorkerASynch();

//... BackGroundWorker_Dowork()
Webservice.run()

All that I need is: How can I have retuning values when the background worker has finished the work? I mean the Webservice is controlling the european VAT returning bool valid and string name and string address. How can I have this three returning values for using it on the main Thread? Do I have to assingn these values on a global variable of is there a better way? Thx in advance

You can pass result of background operation using DoWorkEventArgs.Result property.

Backgroundworker.RunWorkerCompleted += new RunWorkerCompletedEventHandler(Backgroundworker_RunWorkerCompleted);

void BackGroundWorker_DoWork(object sender, DoWorkEventArgs e)
{
    // your existing code

    // Make result
    OperationResult r = new Result();   // OperationResult  is your class which contains results of background operation
    r.Name = ...;
    r.Address = ...;     // fill result properties
    e.Result = r;
}

void Backgroundworker_RunWorkerCompleted(object sender, RunWorkerCompletedEventArgs e)
{
     if ( e.Error != null )
     {
         // report error
     }
     else if ( e.Cancelled )
     {
          // report cancellation
     }
     else
     {
         OperationResult r = (OperationResult)e.Result;
         // get result here
     }
}

Sorry Alex, just one more thing...
   OperationResult r = new Result();   // OperationResult  is your class which contains results of background operation
 r.Name = ...;
    r.Address = ...;     // fill result properties

What is the best way to create OperationResult class?

public class Operation Result
{
        string name;
        string address
        OperationResult(string _name, string address)
        {
             name=_name;
             address = _address;

        }
}

Or is there a better way to create an object assigning to properties to it? Thx again

Any way that is convenient for you: class with constructor and read-only properties, class with read/write properties. Anything that allows to keep information and read it. As example of such clas, which is designed only for keeping parameters, see ProcessStartInfo class.
