Thanks for your answer.

Your example works if i create a project for a desktop pc, but my project has to run in a Windows CE 5.0 environment (Compact Framework 3.5) and it doesn't work.
I get two errors:

1) MyNewThread.Start(Me): "too many arguments for 'Public Sub Start()'"
2) Method 'Public Shared Sub MyThreadExecute(Origin As Object)' does not have a signature compatible with delegate 'Delegate Sub ThreadStart()'

1) the method Start(Object) is not supported in Compact Framework so I have to call MyNewThread.Start()

For the second error, I'm searching through MSDN... but I don't understand well, I think I have to modify MyThreadExecute(...) because I can't modify ThreadStart()... now I try, but if you already know the answer...

About the use of global variables, is it such a bad thing?
The real application is more complex of this example, the function executed by the thread will communicate with a PLC via ethernet and will read a lot of data (and write some) and then, at the end of each loop, it will call a function to visualize new data in different "pages" (I use UserControl objects) in the application. My idea is to use a class in order to collect all of these data and make them available inside and outside the thread. What do you think about this?
