Another thread

I'm trying to make another thread in delpi 3.

I call in my main form's oncreate:

SecondThread := TThread.Create(false);

When the user presses a certain button I call:


But the entire application just disappears after the last statement.  I think I'm doing something wrong when inheriting TThread's create method, can someone give me a working example of a thread unit?

Hi, I don't remember if the example exists in D3, but I can send you the D2 example.
The example shows three sorting methods at once to compare the speed, of cource it uses threads.

Post your email if you don't find it in D3.
( if you need mine it's )

You can't use the tthread direcly
you must override it's excecute procedure.
1.Declare secthread like this:
    procedure execute;override;
2. Declare second in var
3. Put the code you want to use in the execute procedure
and then create the thread.
4. Use the thread.

Of course (how stupid can I get?).
