Thread Basics

I'm trying to start a thread in a class I've written using AfxBeginThread

What I want the thread to do is (almost) constantly monitor the status of another executable after I've started it.  The problem is, I can't figure out how to make AfxBeginThread work.

Here's the essence of my call:

void MyClass::StartThread()
{
this->monitorThread = AfxBeginThread(ThreadFunc,NULL,
THREAD_PRIORITY_NORMAL,0,0);
}


Then,
UINT MyClass::ThreadFunc(LPVOID p)
{
   //do stuff
}

I keep getting:
 error C2665: 'AfxBeginThread' : none of the 2 overloads can convert parameter 1 from type 'UINT (LPVOID)'

Any suggestions?  Thanks!

The ThreadFunc needs to be a static or global function.

MyClass
{
    int nData;
    static UINT MyClass::ThreadFunc(LPVOID p);
}

void MyClass::StartThread()
{
    this->monitorThread = AfxBeginThread(ThreadFunc,this,THREAD_PRIORITY_NORMAL,0,0);
}

UINT MyClass::ThreadFunc(LPVOID p)
{
    MyClass* _this = (MyClass*)p;

    //do stuff
    _this->nData = 0;
}
