Prior question: http:/Q_22477527.html

This was working fine, but I attempted to add another (3rd instance) thread and I'm getting the error in the subject.

My first thread(s):

   Private Delegate Sub HistoryDelegate(ByVal strMsg As String)
    Sub ShowHistory - calls    HistoryData("Show") 'just shortening code here for posting...
    Sub AddToHistory - calls   HistoryData("Add")

    Private Sub HistoryData(ByVal strMsg As String)
        If Me.InvokeRequired Then
            ' if operating on a thread, invoke a delegate on the UI thread.
            Dim omd As HistoryDelegate = New HistoryDelegate(AddressOf HistoryData)
            Dim aResult As IAsyncResult = Me.BeginInvoke(omd, New Object() {strMsg})
            Me.EndInvoke(aResult)
            Return
        End If

        Select Case strMsg
            Case "Show"
                     'code to show history in my listbox
            Case "Add"
                     'code to add history to the listbox
        End Select
    End Sub

I believe that was working fine...called from a form-textup event using:
Dim tShowHistory As New Thread(AddressOf ShowHistory) 'ShowHistory()
tShowHistory.Start() 'haven't added anything for the 'add' portion yet

So, in that same event, I went to add another thread using:
Dim tUpdateQuota As New Thread(AddressOf UpdateQuotaDetail)
tUpdateQuota.Start()

Then I added
Private Delegate Sub UpdateQuotaDelegate()
    Private Sub UpdateQuota()
  If Me.InvokeRequired Then
            ' if operating on a thread, invoke a delegate on the UI thread.
            Dim shd As UpdateQuotaDelegate = New UpdateQuotaDelegate(AddressOf UpdateQuota)
            Dim aResult As IAsyncResult = Me.BeginInvoke(shd, New Object())
            Me.EndInvoke(aResult)
            Return
        End If
  'my code
End Sub

    Private Sub UpdateQuotaDetail()
        UpdateQuota()
    End Sub

Did I do something wrong?

Your "UpdateQuotaDelegate" does not receive any events but you are passing it "New Object()".

Try not passing it anything at all.

So instead of:

            Dim aResult As IAsyncResult = Me.BeginInvoke(shd, New Object())

Use:

            Dim aResult As IAsyncResult = Me.BeginInvoke(shd)

That's my GUESS...    ;)

Sorry...

This line:

     Your "UpdateQuotaDelegate" does not receive any events

Should read:

    Your "UpdateQuotaDelegate" does not receive any PARAMETERS
