I have a simple MFC application which holds one dialog with several controls.
I created a thread and with function wich applies to one of the dialog controls. When I run the program I immidiatly have Assertion Failure.
Here is the code:


static UINT Recieve(LPVOID d)
{
   MainDlg& dobj = *(MainDlg*)d;
   cMessage m;
   int i=1;
   int Status;
   CString tmp = ((char)m.mDestination);
//here it fails:
dobj.m_MessageCntrl.SetWindowText(tmp);
      }
      return 0;
}

Could anybody solve this problem for me
Thanks

Hi,

How d is passed?
Is it done as
LPVOID d;
d = &urdialog;

Then access as
MainDlg *dobj = (MainDlg*)d;

Or else have the CDialog's global pointer as
CDialog *g_dlg = NULL;

Then initialise it to the dialog as something like in InitDialog
g_dlg = this;

Then U can straight away use that pointer in the thread.

Try it out.

Why by reference not by pointer?
What is m.mDestination ?

Try changing it to (char*)(m.mDestination)?
