Subject: Please help i am having a cross thread operation
  I am creating a messenger application using c# winforms. loggin in has been okay using openfire server. But where i get a problem is when i try to access a control or change something in a control after the action of an event. its gives me a cross thread operation error please help ...this is some of the code.

ERROR
An exception of type 'System.InvalidOperationException' occurred in System.Windows.Forms.dll but was not handled in user code

Additional information: Cross-thread operation not valid: Control 'listView1' accessed from a thread other than the thread it was created on.


CODE
  1. private void loginBtn_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
  2. {
  3.     Util_I.connect(usernameBox.Text, PaswordBox.Text);
  4.  
  5.     #region EVENTS TO FIRE
  6.     Util_I.client.AutoInvoke = true;
  7.     Util_I.client.OnLogin += Client_OnLogin;
  8.     Util_I.client.OnError += Client_OnError;
  9.     Util_I.client.OnAuthError += Client_OnAuthError;
  10.     Util_I.client.OnRosterItem += new EventHandler<RosterEventArgs>(Client_OnRosterItem);
  11.     Util_I.client.OnRosterEnd += Client_OnRosterEnd;
  12.     Util_I.client.OnPresence += Client_OnPresence;
  13.     #endregion
  14. }
  15.  
  16. private void Client_OnPresence(object sender, Matrix.Xmpp.Client.PresenceEventArgs e)
  17. {
  18.    
  19. }
  20.  
  21. private void Client_OnRosterEnd(object sender, Matrix.EventArgs e)
  22. {
  23.     PopulateList.Invoke(new Action(PopulateList.PerformClick));
  24.  
  25. }
  26.  
  27. #region EVENTS
  28. private void Client_OnAuthError(object sender, SaslEventArgs e)
  29. {
  30.     MessageBox.Show("Authentication Error");
  31.    
  32. }
  33.  
  34. private void Client_OnRosterItem(object sender, RosterEventArgs e)
  35. {
  36.     Rosterlist.Add(e.RosterItem.Jid);
  37.     listView1.Items.Add(e.RosterItem.Jid.User); // this is where i get an error accessing the listview
  38. }
  39.  
  40. private void Client_OnError(object sender, ExceptionEventArgs e)
  41. {
  42.     MessageBox.Show("Login Error");
  43.     ChangeInfoLabel(false);
  44.     HidePanel();
  45. }
  46.  
  47. private void Client_OnLogin(object sender, Matrix.EventArgs e)
  48. {
  49.     MessageBox.Show("Login Successful!");
  50.  
  51.     ChangeInfoLabel(true);
  52.     HidePanel();
  53. }

yes it runs in multiple threads.
usually MatriX finds the dispatcher for invoking of your UI automatically and does all the magic for you.
If it does not find your dispatcher automatically you can pass it manual to MatriX, or invoke all the events on your own.
See also the MiniClient example.
