Rahul was partly correct in his answer however the part about not being able to access other threads needs correcting.
Using delegates you will be able to access controls from other threads.
This is particularly useful where, for instance, you will be updating a progress bar on your main form from a background worker that is downloading a file and calculating the bytes left to download.
Or you can use "ProgressChanged" event for doing the same instead for creating delegate.
