I am using the following logic to determine what the current thread is but the code is not working.

I should hit the if statement and set the isCurrent text if I find the current thread. What is wrong with my code?

Dim proc As Process = Process.GetCurrentProcess()
            Dim thread As ProcessThread = Nothing
            Dim isCurrent As String = ""

            For Each thread In proc.Threads
                If System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread Is thread Then
                    isCurrent = "Current_thread: "
                End If
                logmessage(isCurrent & "thread id = " & thread.Id & _
                    " thread.CurrentPriority = " & thread.CurrentPriority)
            Next

Basically you can't do it that way...

What are you going to with the "current" ProcessThread?

You can use the GetCurrentThreadId() API to get the ID of the current thread:
Public Class Form1

    <Runtime.InteropServices.DllImport("kernel32.dll")> _
    Public Shared Function GetCurrentThreadId() As Integer
    End Function

    Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim isCurrent As String
        Dim CurrentThreadID As Integer = GetCurrentThreadId()
        For Each PT As ProcessThread In Process.GetCurrentProcess.Threads
            If CurrentThreadID = PT.Id Then
                isCurrent = "Current_thread: "
            Else
                isCurrent = ""
            End If
            logmessage(isCurrent & "thread id = " & PT.Id & _
                " thread.CurrentPriority = " & PT.CurrentPriority)
        Next
    End Sub

    Private Sub logmessage(ByVal str As String)
        Debug.Print(str)
    End Sub

End Class
