Thread not starting sub VB.NET
Posted on 2010-11-24
Hello everyone. I am having yet another problem with VB.NET
I have a system that constantly pings a database for commands to process, this needs to be running constantly, until it is stopped by the user. The interface of the application needs to remain responsive when this is running though, so I decided to enclose the checking process in a thread. I am using the attached code. It seems the thread starts, as if I call .IsAlive from the startthread sub, it shows it as true, but nothing in the sub is being called.
This was previously working perfectly, and now it has completely stopped.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
