Multithreading Problem using TThread

Multithreading Problem using TThread

Multithreading Problem using TThread

I created a descendant class of TThread, implemented the Execute function exactly as described in the C++-Builder Help. The Execute function contains a tight loop.
Now when I start the thread calling it's Execute-method, the mainwindow of the application can no longer be closed by clicking on the x-Button (upper right corner). I have to kill the application by killing its process in the taskmanager. Any idea why this is?


RE: Multithreading Problem using TThread

Without seeing your code, I'll make an assumption that the child thread is still running when you try to close the main app. You make have to implement an action that will kill all child threads when the main thread's OnClose method is called.
