C# Question

The calling thread cannot access this object because a different thread owns it

My code is as below

public CountryStandards()
{
InitializeComponent();
try
{
FillPageControls();
}
catch (Exception ex)
{
MessageBox.Show(ex.Message, "Country Standards", MessageBoxButton.OK, MessageBoxImage.Error);
}
}

/// <summary>
/// Fills the page controls.
/// </summary>
private void FillPageControls()
{
popUpProgressBar.IsOpen = true;
lblProgress.Content = "Loading. Please wait...";
progress.IsIndeterminate = true;
worker = new BackgroundWorker();
worker.DoWork += new System.ComponentModel.DoWorkEventHandler(worker_DoWork);
worker.ProgressChanged += new System.ComponentModel.ProgressChangedEventHandler(worker_ProgressChanged);
worker.WorkerReportsProgress = true;
worker.WorkerSupportsCancellation = true;
worker.RunWorkerCompleted += new System.ComponentModel.RunWorkerCompletedEventHandler(worker_RunWorkerCompleted);
worker.RunWorkerAsync();
}

private void worker_DoWork(object sender, System.ComponentModel.DoWorkEventArgs e)
{
GetGridData(null, 0); // filling grid
}

private void worker_ProgressChanged(object sender, System.ComponentModel.ProgressChangedEventArgs e)
{
progress.Value = e.ProgressPercentage;
}

private void worker_RunWorkerCompleted(object sender, System.ComponentModel.RunWorkerCompletedEventArgs e)
{
worker = null;
popUpProgressBar.IsOpen = false;
//filling Region dropdown
Standards.UDMCountryStandards objUDMCountryStandards = new Standards.UDMCountryStandards();
objUDMCountryStandards.Operation = "SELECT_REGION";
DataSet dsRegionStandards = objStandardsBusinessLayer.GetCountryStandards(objUDMCountryStandards);
if (!StandardsDefault.IsNullOrEmptyDataTable(dsRegionStandards, 0))
StandardsDefault.FillComboBox(cmbRegion, dsRegionStandards.Tables[0], "Region", "RegionId");

//filling Currency dropdown
objUDMCountryStandards = new Standards.UDMCountryStandards();
objUDMCountryStandards.Operation = "SELECT_CURRENCY";
DataSet dsCurrencyStandards = objStandardsBusinessLayer.GetCountryStandards(objUDMCountryStandards);
if (!StandardsDefault.IsNullOrEmptyDataTable(dsCurrencyStandards, 0))
StandardsDefault.FillComboBox(cmbCurrency, dsCurrencyStandards.Tables[0], "CurrencyName", "CurrencyId");

if (Users.UserRole != "Admin")
btnSave.IsEnabled = false;

}

/// <summary>
/// Gets the grid data.
/// </summary>
/// <param name="sender">The sender.</param>
/// <param name="pageIndex">Index of the page.( used in case of paging) </pamam>
private void GetGridData(object sender, int pageIndex)
{
Standards.UDMCountryStandards objUDMCountryStandards = new Standards.UDMCountryStandards();
objUDMCountryStandards.Operation = "SELECT";
objUDMCountryStandards.Country = txtSearchCountry.Text.Trim() != string.Empty ? txtSearchCountry.Text : null;
DataSet dsCountryStandards = objStandardsBusinessLayer.GetCountryStandards(objUDMCountryStandards);
if (!StandardsDefault.IsNullOrEmptyDataTable(dsCountryStandards, 0) && (chkbxMarketsSearch.IsChecked == true || chkbxBudgetsSearch.IsChecked == true || chkbxProgramsSearch.IsChecked == true))
{
DataTable objDataTable = StandardsDefault.FilterDatatableForModules(dsCountryStandards.Tables[0], "Country", chkbxMarketsSearch, chkbxBudgetsSearch, chkbxProgramsSearch);
dgCountryList.ItemsSource = objDataTable.DefaultView;
}
else
{
MessageBox.Show("No Records Found", "Country Standards", MessageBoxButton.OK, MessageBoxImage.Information);
btnClear_Click(null, null);
}
}


The step
objUDMCountryStandards.Country = txtSearchCountry.Text.Trim() != string.Empty ? txtSearchCountry.Text : null;
in get grid data throws exception


The calling thread cannot access this object because a different
thread owns it.


What's wrong here?

This is a common problem with people getting started. Whenever you update your UI elements from a thread other than the main thread, you need to use:

this.Dispatcher.Invoke(() =>
    {
        ...// your code here.
    });

You can also use control.Dispatcher.CheckAccess() to check whether the current thread owns the control. If it does own it, your code looks as normal. Otherwise, use above pattern.
