ISynchronizeInvoke.Invoke Method

Synchronously executes the delegate on the thread that created this object and marshals the call to the creating thread.

Namespace:  System.ComponentModel
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

Object Invoke(
	Delegate method,
	Object[] args


Type: System.Delegate

A Delegate that contains a method to call, in the context of the thread for the control.

Type: System.Object[]

An array of type Object that represents the arguments to pass to the given method. This can be null if no arguments are needed.

Return Value

Type: System.Object
An Object that represents the return value from the delegate being invoked, or null if the delegate has no return value.

Unlike BeginInvoke, this method operates synchronously, that is, it waits until the process completes before returning. Exceptions raised during the call are propagated back to the caller.

Use this method when calling a method from a different thread to marshal the call to the proper thread.
