Hello.
Say i have a Form1(). and a Textbox1 in it. Now i have a class named "myclass" in another myclass.cs file.  (myclass is public). and myclass has a function named foo()

myclass is performing some asynchronous operations in the background.  I want foo() to update
textbox1.  
I know i need to use delegates, but can you help me how to do that with a  sample ?
Thanks.

Sorry there was missing code in the first snippet
    class MyClass
    {
        public event Action<string> OperationComplete;

        public void Foo()
        {

            if (OperationComplete != null)
                OperationComplete("OperationCompleted");
        }
    }

    public partial class Form1 : Form
    {
        private MyClass myclass;
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();

            myclass = new MyClass();
            myclass.OperationComplete += new Action<string>(myclass_OperationComplete);
        }

        void myclass_OperationComplete(string obj)
        {
            if (this.InvokeRequired)
            {
                this.Invoke(new Action<string>(myclass_OperationComplete), new object[] {obj});
                return;
            }

            textbox1.Text = obj;
        }
}

Thanks. But how will i raise the event from Foo() ?
For example,  say Foo is accepting a input parameter int input:

Foo(int input).
if(input==5)
Invoke  the textbox ====> How will il invoke it ?

Foo is firing an event which is subscribed by Form1 through myclass_OperationComplete method. It then set the value in the required textbox.
public void Foo(int input)
        {

            if (input == 5 && OperationComplete != null)
                OperationComplete("OperationCompleted");
        }
