Description Prashant Cholachagudda 2013-07-02 09:00:11 UTC
The application randomly crashes on executing the code in ContinueWith method.

The program crashes because it says that I am trying to access the UI
thread in the thread that doesn't allow it

Comment 3 Marek Safar 2013-07-04 06:34:21 UTC
The exception is correct. The program is trying to access UITextField::Text property from new task scheduled on thread pool thread.

The user code

				System.Threading.Tasks.Task.Factory.StartNew (() => 
					mobjRing.Save (); // Save contains call to UITextField::Text
				}).ContinueWith (t => 
				}, context);

The continuation has nothing to do with it as it runs after the task failed to execute.
