I have a windows application form which has a textbox. I need to update the textbox on the main form from another class.
If I have a  button and textbox.when I click the button, it creates an object of another class and calls the method of the class. Asthe method is running it is looping through rows. It sends a message as it completes each row. I want that message to be displayed in th textbox.
Do we need to use delegates??/
Can you please provide me a solution for this.

You would need an instance of the main form, and then set the Modifiers to internal for the TextBox.

I have created instance of the main from.It is sending the messages.but the form gets frozen. I am not able to see it. it may be because the application is still running.
is there any way to see it updating when the application is running.

yes delegates and events is the way to go in this scenario

create a delegate and an event in childclass

public delegate void SearchDelegate (string screenName, string parameter);
public event SearchDelegate SearchEvent;

in the method that you call add this
if (SearchEvent != null)
{
     SearchEvent ();
}

in the main form subscribe to the event as (just an idea)
this.childclass1.SearchEvent += new childclass.SearchDelegate(ShowScreen);

this will call your function and then you can handle your cases accordingly

you need to pass the string value which u need to update to the text box in the delegate and then use that in the main form
