Event For The Termination Of A Thread And Process?

Jul 12, 2009

At the moment, I am writing a class that deals with starting an application in a thread, as well as being able to monitor the closure of the thread and process, and the creation of the thread and process through events. I have absoloutly no problems with monitering the creation of the thread and its internal process within the subs that create them. I placed notifications within the "myprocess_Exited",(for the process closure)  and "myprocess_Disposed"(for the thread closure) events.

The problem comes when I terminate the outside application manually; these events do not appear to fire when the application is closed by the user, rather than by code.I thought, since the application closes with an error code when it is terminated in such a way, that it raises the "myprocess_ErrorDataRecieved" event. But this doesn't appear to happen either. Here is some of the code from that class:

'Some of the decleratoins
Event ProcessStarted(ByVal Process As Process)
Event ThreadStarted(ByVal Thread As System.Threading.Thread)

Get Information About A Processes When An System Process Event Is Raised An Event

May 17, 2012

I am making a function of an application that when a function is called the application will close all processes that are owned by the user and were started after a specific point. My thoughts on this would be to trigger an event in my application every time a process is started and ended, and only if the processes is owned by the user, the event should get information (e.g. the process ID, name, etc) about that process and add or remove that information to/from an array depending on if the process starts or ends. Then when a function is called end all the processes in that array.

Process Or Thread Changed Since Last Step

Mar 21, 2011

The code has gone bad. It is in debug mode and jumping around everywhere.
Error = "The process or thread has changed since last step."

Here is the code. I just create the file "start.csv" to initialize the shell command. This is very unstable for some reason. When I run line by line in debug mode it starts jumping around irrationally. It gives me versions of the above error.

Option Strict On
Option Explicit On

VS 2010 - How To Exit From Thread / Process

Apr 10, 2012

Basically, I am just trying to close the thread/process after it's done.

Private psi As ProcessStartInfo
Private cmd As Process
Public Delegate Sub InvokeWithString(ByVal text As String)
Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
Dim psi As New ProcessStartInfo("m7.bat")
[Code] .....

I am trying to close the thread so once it's done, it closed for good and my form is closed as well. I tried Me.Close() which results in: "Cross-thread operation not valid: Control 'Form1' accessed from a thread other than the thread it was created on." Error.

Me.Invoke(New InvokeWithString(AddressOf CloseME), e) - Results in parameter mismatch error.
However, things like Msgbox("Done") works perfectly.

Implement Multithreaded Crawler - Add A Unique Url To Each Thread To Go Process

Feb 1, 2010

I would like to implement a mulithtreaded crawler using the single thread crawler code I have now. Basically I read the urls from a text file, take each one and crawl and parse it. I know how thread basics of creating a thread and assigning a process to it but not too sure how to implement in the following way:

I need at least 3 threads and need to assign a url to each thread from a list of urls, and then each needs to go and fetch it and parse it before adding contents to a database. [Code] Now the code maynot make sense but what I need to do is add a unique url to each thread to go process.

VS 2010 - Process Exe Thread Is Halting Main Application?

Feb 10, 2012

I have two applications. For performing certain functions, i run a second exe, via a process, and wait till it is complete (exited) to continue with my main application. I run through many repetitive functions on different files.Everything runs fine however, when i am doing a run and it is on the x loop number, the main application seems to halt the secondary process exe. I can only assume this is what is happening as, if i close/stop (not pause) my main application in VB, the second exe continues from where it was halted until it completes.

Termination Of A .net Program?

Apr 19, 2012

I have an application which I wrote in vb.net. When the application starts it connects to mysql database online to get some data and once done it proceeds.The problem is that at times it gets stuck in the mysql thing, I mean after requesting nothing happens and this causes my program to lock up. This can be because of internet problem or server.

Is there a way the program can determine that x seconds has elapsed and it has not got any data, so self terminate it. I tried using timer to perform this action but as the program requests for data, it gets stuck, I mean it locks up and thus timer also locks up and only after task is done everything resumes.

I wanted that when the program is about to start request, I can start a timer and determine that x seconds has elapsed, so now terminate the application.

Checking The Return Code Set By A Task / Thread / Process / Program?

Apr 16, 2010

A long time ago, on a PC far, far away from Windows, one MS-DOS program (the father) could run / execute / spawn another MS-DOS program (the son).  When the son terminated, it could set a return code which could certainly be interrogated by an MS-DOS batch program or, I think, by any father program that invoked it (depending on the language in which that program was written).  I have a small utilility which I want to invoke from my application, and, since that utility sets a return code, I would like to interrogate it in my application when the utility terminates.  I've looked through the MSDN Library but could not find anything that seemed to cover this situation.  Is there a way to do this in Visual Basic 2008 Express

Display A Modal Msgbox When Called From A Separate Thread Process?

May 14, 2010

I'm using VB.net 2005, .net framework 2.0

I'm currently having a form that has a button starting a long process, with feedback into another windows textbox (call frmProcessLog).

I'm using a Background worker to laucnh the process, upgrade the status of the process and display feedback on the frmProcessLog textbox, and to know when the thread process ended up, (from the cancel button, from an error or normal termination).

the main thread process has some msgbox in it, asking questions to the operator (yes/no/cancel).

I've added the msgboxstyle.systemmodal to the msgbox call which works "ok" excpet if the operator decide to ignore the showing message box and click the cancel button on the frmProcessLog form, which is still clickable even though I supplied "systemModal" to the msgbox. this makes the msgbox hidden behind the frmProcesslog form and the process can still continue.

If I close my frmProcessLog form, I will see the previously msgbox behind it and If I end up click one of the button it will end up at an application error because the thread that called it is not existing anymore.

So I would like that the msgbox to be launched from the thread making it as if it was launched from my frmProcessLog window in a modal way.

Auto-Termination Of Foreground Threads?

Apr 25, 2010

I just wanted to know that When our Vb.net application terminates are all our foreground threads automatically terminated.I read that all our background threads (worker threads) are all automatically terminated once the application shutsdown (when we dispose it)H/owever i wanted to know about Foreground threads , I know that wehn we use

dim t as thread
t = new thread (address of blahblah)
t.isbackground  = true ;  //This makes it a worker thread ... which will terminate when the form is disposed

my question is now suppose i dont set the background property and make it run as a foreground parallel thread. Will it close when the application disposes...

Capture Event In Another Thread?

May 6, 2012

I'd like to create a WebBrowser for the purpose of taking a screenshot of a website. Once its finished it will update a thumbnail image in a ListView. I'd like the whole operation to be done in the background so the UI remains responsive.I toyed with Creating the WebBrowser in a new thread and calling Navigate. I can use a loop to watch for the ReadyState of the webbrowser before I do the screencapture. However it will only continue with the thread if I use Application.DoEvents in that loop. I've never been a huge fan of doing this and would prefer to watch for an event instead. However if I add a handles clause to the WebBrowser it doesn't fire (I tried creating the WebBrowser in the thread, and also tried by declaring it as shared within the class scope).

Creating A Form In A New Thread (From An Event)

I have a small form that notifies the user on the completion of events (such as SMO restore). I want this form to appear from various sources (such as the below SMO Restore complete event) so I guess I need to create a new thread before creating the form?

I've confirmed that raising events on new threads fixing the problem.)[code]...

Suspend A Thread While Waiting For Event?

Jul 1, 2011

I am trying to use a separate thread to handle specific events in VB.Net. The idea being that I do not want the main application to be held up if a particular event handler takes awhile to finish. How do I get my main thread loop to suspend the thread while allowing it to handle events when they occur?When I create a Windows Forms application, there is a UI thread that handles the UI events. I do not imagine that this thread is continuously polling some variable to see if someone has pressed a button. I imagine the thread is suspended until the OS tells it there is something to do. I was trying to figure out how to ensure that my event handlers were not being executed by the UI thread. From what I have read, I can do this by raising the events from a different thread. But what does that thread do while it is waiting for other events, just exit?

I wanted to know how to create a thread that works like the UI thread, only it processes the events I want it to process. I am not sure how events work in .Net. I understand that event handlers are run on the thread that raises the event. I believe that .Net allocates threads from some thread pool to process events such as timer events. I am not clear on how it works, though, and what those threads are doing when they are not handling events.

Ascii Code For Termination Character For TCPServer / Client Communications?

Jan 5, 2009

I am working on a client/server based application and I have run into quite a few snags stumbling my way through I have resolved quite a few issues, and need help with something new. I am using a TCPIP client/server and I find that at the end of each loop when I am reading the data from the network stream it appends a character to the end. I have tried removing the last character but I am not sure if it is getting the whole character successfully because I still get lots of different errors both in binary and xml deserialization whcih I think is related to this. Does anyone know the ascii code for the termination character for TCPServer/Client communications?

Waiting For Threads - Thread.join Suspend Execution Of Code On Calling Thread Until Spawned Thread Finishes Or Is Aborted

Sep 2, 2010

My understanding is that thread.join will suspend the execution of code on the calling thread until the spawned thread finishes or is aborted...

With that in mind, I tried this:

For i = 1 to 50
threads = New Thread(AddressOf test)
threads.IsBackground = True


However, the rest of the code runs when the loop finishes, not waiting for all the spawned threads to finish. Since the rest of the code needs the threads to finish (otherwise the rest will error).

Thread Is Not Being Removed When Removing Event Handler

I'm developing some code to detect new files in a directory and signal it in a new thread through the Created event of FileSystemWatcher. While testing this I noticed that after I removed the eventhandler from the event the thread that was being used was not closed. Why is that? Am I doing something wrong when I'm removing the eventhandler? [code]So first I start off clicking Button 2 to start the event handler. I copy a xml file to the Temp folder and the event will trigger and set the name of the thread. After that I will click Button 1 to remove the event handler. If I then pause the execution the Thread "UpdateSomething" will still be there.

How can I raise the event, similar to Background Worker's progress update event, where I don't have to specifically do an .Invoke for UI updates?

Do I wrap the event with a delegate or something? Sample code will be fine though, if the explanation was tedious.

Cross-thread Operation Not Valid: Control 'Autocad' Accessed From A Thread Other Than The Thread It Was Created On

When I debug the program, it stops at frmCad.Dispose()The program continues to execute, but all the code after it fails to work.Looking more carefully I get an error message which contains:-Cross-thread operation not valid: Control 'Autocad' accessed from a thread other than the thread it was created on.
