    I have a situation where I am trying to add items to a collection from a background thread. The collection is bound to a RadTabControl. When I add the items through the UI thread I have no issues. When I do it from a backgroundworker the current tabs will all lose focus on whatever selected items they had.

    Is there another option to show a busy indicator without having to use a background worker?

    Hi Jonah,

    The RadTabControl is a UI control and all interactions with it should happen on the UI thread only. We think it is very unsafe to use a thread other than than the UI thread to modify the tab control. Let us know if you have any other questions.
