ISynchronizeInvoke.Invoke(Delegate, Object[]) Method

Definition

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

public:
 System::Object ^ Invoke(Delegate ^ method, cli::array <System::Object ^> ^ args);
public object Invoke (Delegate method, object[] args);
abstract member Invoke : Delegate * obj[] -> obj
Public Function Invoke (method As Delegate, args As Object()) As Object

Parameters

method
Delegate

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

args
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.

Returns

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

Remarks

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.
