    Hi, I would like to download images in the background from an URL. I currently had a program which is downloading an image from a URL. However the application i created will "freeze" until all the image had be downloaded.

    Hence, I am looking for a way to download images from an URL in the background. So i would be able to continue to use the program while it download.

    I am new to C# (WPF) and I am still learning. Hope you guys can give me some suggestion or links for references. Thank you


    Thank you very much!
    Janet

    to do that, just create a nother thread to fire the method that is downloading the Images.

    Code:
    Thread firstThread = new Thread( new ThreadStart( MethodA) );
    
    Code:
     public void MethodA()
          {
             // Do Nothing
          }
