calling methods (which appears to execute ok) -- is not updating display

Form #1 (which opened Form #2)

public bool SetWebPane(string webURL)
        {
            try
            {
                webBrowserIncompleteDIPs.Navigate(webURL);
                documentPane_IncompleteDIPs.Activate();

                radLabel1.Text = "I should be working OK !";
                return true;
            }
            catch (COMException ex)
            {
                showError(ex);
                return false;
            }
        }

____________________

Form #2

private void radButton1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            FormCentral openForm = new FormCentral();
            openForm.SetWebPane("http://www.123.com");
        }  

problem is that Form #1 does not appear to be updating the screen with visual upates / or processing any of the methods commands such as navigate etc. -- yet in debug I can see the url value being passed across the 2 winforms ok and those lines of code being called ... but nothing on-screen (winform #1) is updating.

what could this? and how fixable?

well, I initially thought of it but don't think it will work !
the reason is you are trying to update controls on another form from one form. The best would be pass the object of Form1 to Form2 in contructor and then try calling the methods on this object.
Further, WebBrowser may have issue since, it is an wrapper to a com component..
let me know if i can help you with more...
