Dynamic Thread Names via Dataset Count

Dynamic Thread Names via Dataset Count


I'm pulling a row count from a dataset. The number of rows vary with each client.
Using the row count I'm creating a Dictionary of Thread Names

CODE -->

Dim threadsDIC As New Dictionary(Of String, Thread)()
        Dim variableName = "Thread"

For i As Integer = 1 To dscustprofile.Tables(0).Rows.Count
 threadsDIC(variableName & i.ToString()) = New Thread(AddressOf DoOdfl)


I also want to dynamically change the AddressOf (ref above "Addressof DoOdfl) which is actually the name of the function the thread will use.
I want to populate the AddressOf from a field in the dataset.

Haven't had much success. Any ideas how I can dynamically change the AddressOf. Strings wont work. has to be a name of a method/prod etc.


RE: Dynamic Thread Names via Dataset Count

Solved it by creating separate classes that I can import and reference

Imports rate_abfs.get_rates

blah blah blah

threadsDIC(variableName & i.ToString()) = New Thread(AddressOf rate_abfs.get_rates)
