How to make class a separate thread? (continued from #22957773)

In reference to the question above, I have tried to do as suggested.  However, there are some properties that I need to reference outside of the thread.  I am getting the following message:

Cross-thread operation not valid: Control 'lPricingServiceStatus' accessed from a thread other than the thread it was created on.

How do I cure this?

I also noticed that I can not start a thread on a method that needs paramaters passed to it... is there a way around this?

About the thread with parameters, collect all your parameters in a single object and use ParameterizedThreadStart to start thread. Have a look to the explanation at:

about the cross-thread check, you can waive it. Implement a Load event in your form, and write inside:

CheckForIllegalCrossThreadCalls = false;
