Hi, I'm learning C# and trying to use a delegate to update a status label from a background worker. That's how I did it in VB. I keep getting an object reference error though with the code toolStripStatusLabelMessage.Text = message;. Here's my code:

public delegate void UpdatetoolStripStatusLabelMessageDelegate(string message);
public static void UpdatetoolStripStatusLabelMessage(string message)
{
toolStripStatusLabelMessage.Text = message;
}

Please show us the code that creates and invokes the delegate. Also, what is the rest of the error message? Does it specify that "Text" is the name of the non-static member in question?
