Friends,

I am getting the dreaded cross-threaded operation not allowed exception when I am trying to add items to my listview.  So, the simplest solution is to use a delegate.  Now, attached, you will my delegate code, except that I am having a problem with it.

If you look in here:

Me.BeginInvoke(ssd, New Object() {listViewToUpdate, ItemToAdd})

            Else
                Select Case listViewToUpdate
                    Case listViewToUpdate.lvShortCuts <-- Here I have the error:
'lvShortCuts' is not a member of 'System.Windows.Forms.ListView'. However, lvShortCuts is infact my listview.  Any idea what's wrong and how to fix it?

Thanks in advance!

Best Regards,
Eric
Private Delegate Sub AddListViewDelegate(ByVal listViewToUpdate As ListView, ByVal ItemToAdd As ListViewItem)

    Public Sub AddListViewItem(ByVal listViewToUpdate As ListView, ByVal ItemToAdd As ListViewItem)

        Try
 
 

            If Me.InvokeRequired Then

                Trace.WriteLine("UpdateScreenLabel - Invoke is required")

                Dim ssd As New AddListViewDelegate(AddressOf AddListViewItem)
 

                Me.BeginInvoke(ssd, New Object() {listViewToUpdate, ItemToAdd})
 

            Else

                Select Case listViewToUpdate

                    Case listViewToUpdate.lvShortCuts

                        lvShortCuts.Items.Add(ItemToAdd)

                End Select

            End If
 

        Catch ex As Exception
 

        End Try
 

    End Sub
 

    Enum listViewToUpdate

        lvShortCuts

    End Enum

SameerJagdale,

I would rather not.  I am wanting to work on my Delagate and fix the syntax therein.

Best Regards,
Eric

BTW, what is this
Case listViewToUpdate.lvShortCuts
your listview is listViewToUpdate. right?

Well, the acutal name of the listview that I want to update is lvShortcuts, listViewToUpdate is where lvShortCuts is enumerated.

I got it.  Thanks anyway.

Here was the code I used to make it work:
    Private Delegate Sub AddListViewDelegate(ByVal listView As listViewToUpdate, ByVal ItemToAdd As String, ByVal SubItem1 As String, ByVal SubItem2 As String)

    Public Sub AddListViewItem(ByVal listView As listViewToUpdate, ByVal ItemToAdd As String, ByVal SubItem1 As String, ByVal SubItem2 As String)

        Try
 

            If Me.InvokeRequired Then

                Trace.WriteLine("UpdateScreenLabel - Invoke is required")

                Dim ssd As New AddListViewDelegate(AddressOf AddListViewItem)
 

                Me.BeginInvoke(ssd, New Object() {listView, ItemToAdd, SubItem1, SubItem2})
 

            Else

                Select Case listView

                    Case listViewToUpdate.lvShortCuts

                        Dim li As New ListViewItem

                        li = lvShortCuts.Items.Add(ItemToAdd)

                        li.SubItems.Add(SubItem1)

                        li.SubItems.Add(SubItem2)

                End Select

            End If
 

        Catch ex As Exception
 

        End Try
 

    End Sub
 

    Enum listViewToUpdate

        lvShortCuts

    End Enum
