THREAD | TO CREATE AND IMPLEMENT THE USE OF THEREAD IN VC++

OBJECTIVE:
To implement the use of threads in vc++.
PROCEDURE:
1. Run the MFC appwizard(dll) to generate the application c:\thread
2. Select the ingle document in step 1 of appwizard
3. Select all the default settings except printing and print preview
4. Using the resource view, right click on the dialog and select the new dialog
5. Create new dialog box named IDC_PROGRESS1
6. Name the new dialog on IDD_COMPUTE using properties
7. The default OK button can be changed to IDC_START
8. Leave the default cancel button as such
9. By clicking on the dialog IDD_COMPUTE the system will automatically ask for a class name ive the classname as CComputeDlg
10. Using the class wizard map the message BN_CLICKED to the IDC_START, IDC_CANCEL objects
11. Declare the following in the compute DLG.H file next to #ENDIF
#define WM_THREADFINISHED
class CComputeDlg : public CDialog
{
LRESULT OnThreadFinished(WPARAM wparam,LPARAM lparam);
private:
int m_nTimer;
public:
enum{nMaxCount=10000};
12. Using class wizard map the message WM_TIMER to the CComputeDlg.cpp files as follows
void CComputeDlg::OnTimer(UINT nIDEvent)
{
CProgressCtrl*pBar=(CProgressCtrl*)GetDlgItem(IDC_PROGRESS1);
pBar->SetPos(g_nCount*100/nMaxCount);
CDialog::OnTimer(nIDEvent);
}
13. Type the following in compute Dlg.cpp type the definition of the thread before the constructor next to #endif
int g_nCount=0;
UINT ComputeThreadProc(LPVOID pParam)
{
volatile int nTemp;
for(g_nCount=0;g_nCount
EnableWindow(FALSE);
AfxBeginThread(ComputeThreadProc,GetSafeHwnd(),THREAD_PRIORITY_NORMAL);
}
void CComputeDlg::OnCancel()
{
if(g_nCount==0)
{
CDialog::OnCancel();
}
else
{
g_nCount=nMaxCount;
}
}
15. Type the OnThreadFinished definition in the end of ComputeDlg.cpp file
LRESULT CComputeDlg::OnThreadFinished(WPARAM wparam,LPARAM lparam)
{
CDialog::OnOK();
return 0;
}
16. Using the class wizard map the CThreadView class an edit the following
void CThreadView::OnLButtonDown(UINT nFlags, CPoint point)
{
dlg.DoModal();
CView::OnLButtonDown(nFlags, point);
}
17. And in OnDraw function of CThreadView.cpp type the following
pDC->TextOut(0,0,"press the left mouse button here");
18. Include the header file of ComputeDlg in CThreadView.cpp
#include "ComputeDlg.h"
19. Compile and run and test the application
