WPF textbox logging with multithread application RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm new to C# and WPF so excuse me if this question is too basic.

    I have created a WPF application with a textbox where multiple threads are writing log text when calling the Log methode.

    The code seems to work but ends with an error everytime i put av break point in the code (VS). Why?

            private void Log(string text)
                if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(text))
                if (textBoxLog.Dispatcher.Thread == Thread.CurrentThread)
                    textBoxLog.Text += text + Environment.NewLine;
                    this.Dispatcher.Invoke(() => textBoxLog.Text += text +Environment.NewLine);
                    this.Dispatcher.Invoke(() => textBoxLog.ScrollToEnd());

  • Hi Bjorn,

    I use multiple thread to call your method, but I don't get any error at my side, where you have error? Here is the my code, you can take a look:

                for(Int32 i=0;i<10;i++)
                    //var t = Task.Run(() => Log("test" + i));
                    Thread t = new Thread(()=>Log("test"));

    Best Regards,
