I need a manual or tutorial with examples of how to  use Generic and when to use them.

I am studying Thread right now and I need to know how Generics come into place.

Also, I need to have a clear picture of when to use them and when not.

Thank you for your help.

Generics and threads are two different things, don't confuse them.

A thread will allow you to for example perform a long calculation AND have the main window still respond to the user.

A generic will allow you to have one function that can work with many different types of objects.

As Andy said, they are two different things.

I'm sure you're reading your previous question about threads:

Just keep that on a different 'compartment' and then read this about Generics:

Thank you AndyAinscow for you short but precise answer.

Yes in deed, I read the other question and created some little programs to get the idea and get use to write threads. also, thank you for the manual an Generic.
