Hi,

I'm new to using threads and am looking for an example of how to do the following:

I want a blank form with a button. When I press the button I want to start a thread that creates a tibdatabase component, opens the connection, and then shows a message saying successful.

So just go to File -> New -> Other -> Thread Object and put the application code into the Execute procedure, being certain that you use Synchronize to make ANY references to GUI components.

Oh, and yes, within your button's OnClick event, you could do the creation (dynamically).

I've tried doing that, but it just does nothing. I get no error messages either.

The problem is in the ButtonClick.

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  this MyThread : mythread;
begin
  thismythread := mythread.Create(false);
end; { of procedure }

still dosnt work. the label changes to 'starting' and stays like that

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  StdCtrls, DB, IBDatabase;


type  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Label1: TLabel;
    Button1: TButton;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end; { of class declaration }

type
  mythread = class(TThread)
  private
    { Private declarations }
  procedure opendatabase;
  protected
    procedure Execute; override;
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var f:mythread;
begin
f:=mythread.Create(false);
end; { of procedure }

procedure mythread.Execute;
begin
  { Place thread code here }
synchronize(opendatabase);
  end;

procedure mythread.opendatabase;
var db:tibdatabase;
begin
form1.label1.caption:='starting';
db:=tibdatabase.Create(db);
db.DatabaseName:='z:\track\protrack.gdb';
db.Params.add('user_name=sysdba');
db.params.add('password=masterkey');
form1.label1.caption:='about to open';
db.Open;
if db.connected then form1.label1.caption:='connected' else form1.Label1.caption:='disconnected';

end;

end.

Does the same code work successfully in a non-thread procedure?

Okay not to worry, i've sorted it out.
I've upgraded to the latest IBX, and also found an example of how to use IBconnectionbroker in a thread.
