Simplest thread-safe way to set BindingSource's DataSource

// Fire and forget threading. Even the WCF took a long time, 
// your UI won't be locked(the dreaded white window with Not Responding on title bar)
ThreadPool.QueueUserWorkItem(o => 
    var tx = new TheServiceReference.ServiceClient();
    var sh = tx.Sales_OpenByOrNum("aaa");
    // using the this.Invoke will make the BindingSource run on UI thread
        bdsHeader.DataSource = sh; 
    MessageBox.Show("Record opened.");
