I have an asp.net app that spawns a thread like this

      Thread ANEWTHREAD = new Thread(new ThreadStart(DoSomething));
        ANEWTHREAD.Start();

I want to check on another page if the thread is still running - how can I do that?

Interesting Question: Try whether this will help.
In page1.aspx( where thread is created)
Thread...IsAlive Property
true if this thread has been started and has not terminated normally or aborted; otherwise, false

in page2.aspx
check the session variable, if its true its executing else not.


Dim instance As Thread

Dim value As Boolean
 

value = instance.IsAlive

if(value)

 session("threadstate") = "Alive";

else

 session("threadstate") = "Dead";

Open in new window
