I have written a Windows form application using .Net.
I have one web form so the application is pretty simple.  On the web form I have a lable control which I use to display status messages. I can update the label in the code behind file for my web form MainForm.cs

 The code behind for the web form MainForm.cs calls a C# class "Scoper". I would also like to be able to update the label control within that class. How can i do that since the label control can be accessed from the main form code behind file MainForm.cs . I just don't know how to get a handle on the label control from my class Scoper
