You can READ a controls value from another thread no problem.  I believe your error is because the value in the TextBox cannot be converted to a Double.  It is either blank or something that is not a number representing a Double.  Use Double.TryParse() instead...

The error you posted was indeed associated with the conversion of a string to a double, and had nothing to do with threading.  =)

The code you posted was reading from the control, which does not create an error.

Writing to the control from the thread, which you did not have in your posted code, would create a different exception that can be solved with Invoke() and Delegates.
