Threading with forms in Delphi 3

Posted on 1998-03-26
Last Modified: 2010-04-06
I am trying to create a threaded application with Delphi 3.  What is does is when a new thread is executed it simply creates a form, but when I try and run the application it just hangs.  I do not get this problem when I run it under Delphi 2. I can supply the code if needed.   Any ideas?

try creating a new thread for each form in the thread use TApplication to create the form

this should be paced in the create for the thread:

  threadApp := TApplication.Create( nil );
  threadApp.CreateForm( TYourForm, YourForm );

hope this helps
