VB.NET Question about killing threads completely, I'm stumped.
Posted on 2007-03-22
I have a thread now that establishes an internet connection and begins to handle packets, etc.
I've run the t.abort() call on the thread and set t = nothing and it appears as if the object is gone (if I call t.abort() again it gives me an object error that its not defined)
the strange thing is the connection is not terminated (i can see packets still being processed)... so I'm a bit confused
Can someone clarify to me the BEST way to totally kill a thread and everything related to it immediately?
I'm guessing that terminating the thread only kills the sub process that was called at the addressof... any way to go deeper than that?
