To thread or not too thread?
Posted on 2005-04-19
very simply I have an application which has many forms. Wiithin the mainform I would like to run a timer that executes every 10 minutes. While executing I may need to call another form and perform some process before returning to the mainform and it's running loop. Is there an elegant way to "pause" execution, create form and setfocus to other form where the user can then process some data. When the user closes the opened form then it would resume execution in the mainform. I just wondered if I will need to investigage threading at lenght to accomplish this or possibly Delphi was kind enough to include some functionality inherent in Enterprise version 6.
Thanks for everyone's insight.....
