Subject What is legal to do in second thread?
Date Fri, 22 Apr 2011 16:28:37 GMT
Trying to understand the Pivot threading model:  what is okay to do in a
background thread re: the GUI objects?

-          Is it legal to change the data model (of a TreeView or
similar)?

-          Is it legal to update the text of a TextInput (or similar)?

 

What are the implications of doing things that aren't "legal"?  Are we
threatening to crash or destabilize the JVM?  Or is it that we may have
race conditions or data corruption because data structures are not
thread-safe?

 

Thanks.
