Hi

I need to be able to tell when a thread has finished so I can run some procedures. I do not want to sit and wait for it so is there an event or something that is raised?

Thanks Nick Steele

There are many ways to do it...the "best" approach is highly dependent upon the type of application and how the "flow" of what you're doing fits into the "big picture".

Can you give more details on the type of app, version of VB, what is being done, and when "it" is firing off?

The application is an FTP upload. I use the thread to upload the files but when it is finished I need to update a tree view which is in the main thread.

use the backgroundworker to run your threads and handle the OnComplete event. e.g have a messagebox or update a label with your chosen notification
