First you need to define prototipe of you member function
  typedef BOOL (CMyClass::*PFMy)(BOOL); 

define follow class
class CMyThreadParam
{
  CMyClass* m_pMyClass;
  PFMy m_pfMy;
};

Writing you working thread function in that way
UINT MyThreadFn(LPVOID pParam)
{
  CMyThreadParam* pMyThreadParam = (CMyThreadParam*) pParam;
  // do someting;

  // Call you member function
  BOOL bRes = (pMyThreadParam->m_pMyClass->*
               pMyThreadParam->m_pfMy)(TRUE);

  // do someting;

  return 0;
}

To start thread function do this in CMyClass

In some function do this to start thread.
  CMyThreadParam* pMyThreadParam = new CMyThreadParam();
  pMyThreadParam->m_pMyClass = this;
  pMyThreadParam->m_pfMy = (PFMy)&CMyClass::MyMember;
That call return immediately(not forget this).
  AfxBeginThread(MyThreadFn, (LPVOID) pMyThreadParam);

Do not forget to call this after thread leave
  delete pMyThreadParam;

So excuse me for my very bad English.
I hope so that help you. To answer send mail in victor_milev@hotmail.com
