Exclamation Update RichTextField when application is running

Please Login to Remove!

He there,

Im very new to JDE so i hope you can help me out.

I have a class which reads data from an URL and returns string:

Like this:
textReader r = new textReader();
Now, wheh i press Start in mij ContextMenu i would like it to display the
r.readData() on the mainscreen in a RichTextField. But when i try to do
that i get an error like:

blocking on event dispatch thread

So the action below isn't working:

    private MenuItem _mGetData = new MenuItem("Ophalen",1,10){
        public void run()
