Threads with Sockets

I'm trying to create a thread object that contains a TClientSocket component.  I need this so I can create new threads to send messages to my server and then end when they have sent the message (or timed out).  I've done most of it, but the TClientSocket is not receiving any messages to say it's connected or timed out.  I get the connecting message but stepping through the code for the component shows that that event is fired before the socket is attempted to connect anyway.  Does the component use Windows messages to work ?  I tried to call the create for the ClientSocket with my TForm1 as the owner and it still didn't work.  Any help appreciated.

Dazza,

 Did you know about the freeware components of F.Piette?
 No, well you should! They are far more better than the Delphi ones (at least these of D3). You get free help! Anytime! And most of all (for your purpose), you can use these components on two ways :

 1. Synchronious, program waits until command terminated
 2. Asynchronious, program doesn't wait = far better then threads (François has shown a demo about these two)

On his site, lot's of demo's too. I hope I've convinced you to use F.Piette's components.

PS. They keep the same also, we can't say this about Inprises components! D3 <> D4 <> ...?


here is the url. : http://www.rtfm.be/fpiette/indexuk.htm

Please, look at it!!! I assure you it's better than in your dreams!
