Can anyone provide an example of how to use SynchronizationContext in an
application. I have a worker thread that needs to post status information to the
UI thread to display update information in a Label.Text control.

You can't do this. It's insane. The reason is simple. ASP.NET takes a request, runs it's events and returns HTML. When your thread responds, the process could have ended, and therefore the HTML has left the building.

You can use AJAX to make info requests in a web page if you want your control to update some status.

Makes sense what your saying but how would I give a worker thread access to a
Label control on my web page. Can you provide a example.

Or are you saying when the thread ends execute some jave acript to update the control?

If it makes sense, then why are you asking about worker threads ? You can't do that. It makes zero sense to do that. You have ONE thread only, and when your page is done being generated, yes, you use javascript with AJAX to update controls.
