to synchronize or not


C++ builder 6 (yes it still works).

I have a form that is created by the main thread, the form hosts a class for databases and a drawgrid to show them.
1. Can a thread safely execute members from that class without synchronize.
2. Can a thread safely operate on the drawgrid without synchronize, for instance delete rows?

My understanding is that both answers are yes, but i'd like to be sure.


RE: to synchronize or not

As far as i know that GUI is not thread safe, so if you're planing to update the GUI you have to use Synchronize() function in the thread.
