converted code function

hello there,
I have converted this function from c# into vb.net but for some reason I get an error on the "new Thread"
saying "Error      1      Syntax error."
how can I get it right?

        public void Decode(DecodeDelegate callback, byte[] img, int timeout)
            DecodePayload payload = new DecodePayload();
            payload.Callback = callback;
            payload.Image = img;
            payload.Timeout = timeout;
            new Thread(DecodeWithCallback).Start(payload);

Open in new window

		Public Sub Decode(callback As DecodeDelegate, img As Byte(), timeout As Integer)
			Dim payload As New DecodePayload()
			payload.Callback = callback
			payload.Image = img
			payload.Timeout = timeout
			New Thread(AddressOf DecodeWithCallback).Start(payload)
		End Sub

Open in new window

I am Not too good in vb, but anyway...i guess vb does not Support this Syntax. You might try to put parenthesis before "New" and before the dot.
But I think the correct style in vb would be this:
Dim Thread As Thread = New Thread(AddressOf DecodeWithCallback)

Hope that helps, regards
