How to Add Listbox item from a different thread?

Last Modified: 2013-11-26
I have a VB.NET (2005) multithreaded program. The main thread has a listbox on it that I am using as sort of a log. Each time an event happens, it adds an item to the listbox. I need the 2nd thread to be able to add items to the listbox as well. I've tried several things without success. Can someone help?
