You can use a closure: new Thread( () => MakeGrey( ...pass your argument here... ) );

Repeater is a server-side control - it is not itself rendered in the HTML, just it's contents

Convert.ToDouble( string ) just calls Double.Parse. There is also an overload that takes an IFormatProvider.

Yes, they have to be, because the service can be running when no-one is logged on ( and therefore there is no desktop )

DllImport is an Attribute and this is how you apply one to a method.

What are your tasks? If they are http requests you need a web farm. Otherwise you are looking at a cluster or load balancing architecture.

I don't understand your question. Could you explain in more detail?

Unless you have thousands of tables, I think you're over-engineering this.

You're finding it difficult to split the tables into groups that are isolated - where's the gain?

Your question and your code sample do not match - are you trying to set the focus or the TabIndex property?

Why aren't you using the RootFolder property?

The library is open source - I meant look at that! It will show you how much work is required to get what you want.

The only way to test a TCP connection is to send a packet and see if it is acknowledged.

Right click the project in Solution Explorer and click Properties. You can select the "Target Framework" on the "Application" tab.

Just saw... 17,000 files !!! Do you really want to show that many in one go?

Are you running the Debug build? It should throw as soon as you touch the grid from the background thread.

Yes, you can get the file paths from the underlying data, as long as you match it up to the current data in the grid when you set the backgrounds.

Also, I think it is imperative you call File.Exists on a background thread. It could take 30 seconds per file if there are network problems and you don't want the UI thread to block.
