I would like to know how to create a user interface thread in MFC. I need to create a Listctrl window in it's own thread. What are the steps to follow using the Winthread class.

Check the MTMDI sample (should be on your VC++ CD; here's the MSDN link: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/vcsample98/html/_sample_mfc_mtmdi.asp)

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/vccore/html/_core_Multithreading.3a_.Creating_User.2d.Interface_Threads.asp ("Multithreading: Creating User-Interface Threads") might also be of interest, as well as http://www.microsoft.com/msj/defaultframe.asp?page=/msj/0197/formsp3/formsp3.htm&nav=/msj/0197/newnav.htm ("Hide Your Data and Make Objects Responsible for Their Own User Interfaces")

First create a new class that has the base class CWinThread.

  class CmyThread : public CWinThread


then in the class you want to create it in delare a instance of you CWinThread class:

  CmyThread mythread;

 
Then where you want to start your GUI thread call:

  myThread = (CDriveThread*) AfxBeginThread(RUNTIME_CLASS(CDriveThread),0,0,0,NULL);

Remember when you want to exit the thread you must call AfxEndThread from inside the thread to correctly end the thread.


Hope that helps.
