Yes - you can raise events between the threads.

Or you can simply have a timer in the main thread checking the state of the thread:
if (
Thread1.ThreadState == ThreadState.Unstarted ||
Thread1.ThreadState == ThreadState.Stopped ||
Thread1.ThreadState == ThreadState.Aborted ||
Thread1.ThreadState == ThreadState.Suspended )
  This thread is dead.

Have a look at for some more examples

Sorry, I am working in too many languages at the same time - they are all starting to merge into one ;). That was a VB.NET example

have a look at 'Using events for thread synchronization'
