Team Build Check-In Policy Error: "Internal error in the Policy. The calling thread must be STA, because many UI components require this."


Deepak Mittal brings us this support experience today.... 

Problem Description

Lets say you have created a check-in policy in TFS 2012 which should display a dialog box to perform some actions at the time of check-in, but this may not work and throw error : "Internal error in the Policy. The calling thread must be STA, because many UI components require this."

 

 

Resolution:

The code should create UI elements in main thread via methods like Control.Invoke. Something like:

public override PolicyFailure[] ABC()

{

return Application.Current.Dispatcher.Invoke(() =>

{

}

}
