How can I wait for the thread "thread" to execute and finish before calling GETEPP?

Do while thread.stopped = false
application.doevents
loop


doesn't seem to work.


 Public Sub New(ByVal url As String, ByVal DTable As DataTable, ByVal EventCode As String, ByVal Agent As String, ByVal EventInstance As String, ByVal tabC As TabControl, ByVal thegoahead As String)
            m_url = url

         Dim thread As New Threading.Thread(AddressOf StartGetDocument)
            thread.Name = "StartGetDocument"
            thread.Start()

              GetEPP(m_document, DTable, tabC, EventCode, EventInstance, Agent, thegoahead)

        End Sub

   as a last staement in the StartGetDocument) function.it will work for your case

I'm not sure what the problem is, ive been trying to find the bug for a week now, I'm thinking its a threading issue, the first time I run the thread it works then second time it messes up.

Fixed it! I took out the startgetdocument thread and just put its code in there. Thanks for your help!

Hi,
   Include some thing like this

                   thread.Name = "StartGetDocument"
                   thread.Start()
                  -->thread.join()
                   GetEPP(m_document, DTable, tabC, EventCode, EventInstance, Agent, thegoahead)

Include thread.join() method as specified above.This will block the main thread until the child thread that you are creating finishes

Thanks,
Nanda
