how to show a modeless form from a thread
Posted on 2004-03-21
did anybody try to show a form from within a running thread? The form's object is declared as a member of the class that owns the thread and is initialized in the class's constructor. now in the thread's delegate, i call the show method (frm.Show()). Conceptually, since its a modeless show, the form should appear and tne tnread should go on with its work. however, just the border and the title of the form appear but nothing is drawn in the form.
why is that? is there any workaround solution?
