I am writing a pogram the uses threads.
I would like that the thread function will be one of the class's member functions.
for example:

void CMyClass::CallThread()
{
    AfxBeginThread(TheadFunc, NULL);
}

UINT CMyClass::TheadFunc( LPVOID p )
{
  ......
}

When I do this I recieve the following error:
none of the 2 overloads can convert parameter 1 from type 'unsigned int (void *)'

!! What am I doing wrong??!?!?!?! I feel this is so simple!
Please help - I am desprate!!!

A member function has a implicit parameter, which is the this pointer. The function prototype is actually
UINT CMyClass::TheadFunc(CMyClass *pThis, LPVOID p);

It does not match what AfxBeginThread requires.

Define it as a static member function. If you want to access the member variables, you can pass them by the memory pointed to by LPVOID.
