Hi All,

Now i am facing a strange question is that:
when my client dialog-based application start, a thread will be created to check the connection with the server. When the connection close is detected, i will alert user for connection closed using AfxMessageBox.

This approach doesn't work when my application is inactivated: The messagebox won't show up and my application hanged.

Are there any suggestions??

Thanks in advance.

Hi webbingxia,

Yeah, i know that i should not call AfxMessageBox in worker thread, but my approach is in the worker thread, i have signal the main thread using SendMessage(); for checking the connection between client app. and the server, so that the AfxMessageBox is called at the main thread.

/*In worker thread, notify the main thread to perform action*/
::SendMessage(main_hwnd, WM_SEND_CHECKALIVE_MSG, 0,0);

/* In main thread, this function is called when WM_SEND_CHECKALIVE_MSG is notified */
LRESULT COAGPCliDlg::OnSendCheckAliveMsg(UINT wParam, LONG lParam)
{
       if connection closed
     then call AfxMessgeBox("Connection closed.")
}

Any idea?

there is nothing happen and the application hanged when your application is inactivated?

AND

Everything is ok when your application is "activated"?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Try to use PostMessage instead of SendMessage:
::PostMessage(main_hwnd, WM_SEND_CHECKALIVE_MSG, 0,0);

Actually, i force the connection close happened by type the command "ipconfig /release" in cmd on window2000.

When the app. have noticed that the connection is closed, then The Messagebox is pop-up when the app. is ACTIVATE. But it doesn't work when the app. is INACTIVATE.

It is so annoying!!! Please Help!!

Thanks.

You need to move dialog box in foreground.
You may to do this with SetForegroundWindow() or
with SetWindowPos(&(CWnd::wndTop), 0, 0, 0, 0, SWP_NOSIZE | SWP_NOMOVE);
