Hey everyone,
 
I'm trying to send the value from a serial port via myPort.DataReceived() to a textlabel on my windows form. Error is of course, that I can't access the control from a different thread. I know i need to use invoke for that but can't get it right. I tried this:
void startlistening()
{    
   port.DataReceived.BeginInvoke += new SerialDataReceivedEventHandler (port_DataReceived);
}
 
void port_DataReceived()
{
    label.Text = port.ReadExisting();
}

The easiest way is to set up a method for it:
        private void SetLabelText(Label l, string s)
            {
            if (InvokeRequired)
                {
                Invoke(new MethodInvoker(delegate { SetLabelText(l, s); }));
                }
            else
                {
                l.Text = s;
                }
            }
