TROThread

Overview

The TROThread class is a base class used by the Remoting SDK to implement an asynchronous execution.
The Super Channels use descendants of the TROThread class to enable true asynchronous calls and server callbacks. Event Sinks and Server Callbacks use them as well.

Location

 

constructor Create (Boolean)    (declared in TROInitializedThread)

Creates a new class instance (standard thread class constructor).

constructor Create(CreateSuspended: Boolean)

Parameters:

  • CreateSuspended: When set to true, this parameter allows to create a thread that will not be started right after it is created. This allows to do some thread class configuration before the execution begins.

constructor Create (Boolean, string)

Initializes the instance with the given arguments.

constructor Create(iCreateSuspended: Boolean; const iName: string)

Parameters:

  • iCreateSuspended: If true, Execute won’t be called until after Resume is called; if false, Execute is called immediately.
  • iName: Become the value of the Name property.

DoTerminate  protected override

procedure DoTerminate

Execute  protected override    (declared in TROInitializedThread)

This method will be executed on the background thread, and should contain the user code. In this class, the Execute method must not be overridden in descendant classes, override IntExecute instead.

procedure Execute

Free  reintroduce

procedure Free

Name  protected

Sets a readable name for the thread.

property Name: string read write

TerminateWaitFor  virtual

Utility method that combines a call to Terminate with a subsequent call to WaitFor.

procedure TerminateWaitFor

WaitFor  reintroduce

Blocks the current thread until the current event receives a signal.

function WaitFor: Cardinal

 

Name  protected

Sets a readable name for the thread.

property Name: string read write

 

constructor Create (Boolean)    (declared in TROInitializedThread)

Creates a new class instance (standard thread class constructor).

constructor Create(CreateSuspended: Boolean)

Parameters:

  • CreateSuspended: When set to true, this parameter allows to create a thread that will not be started right after it is created. This allows to do some thread class configuration before the execution begins.

constructor Create (Boolean, string)

Initializes the instance with the given arguments.

constructor Create(iCreateSuspended: Boolean; const iName: string)

Parameters:

  • iCreateSuspended: If true, Execute won’t be called until after Resume is called; if false, Execute is called immediately.
  • iName: Become the value of the Name property.

DoTerminate  protected override

procedure DoTerminate

Execute  protected override    (declared in TROInitializedThread)

This method will be executed on the background thread, and should contain the user code. In this class, the Execute method must not be overridden in descendant classes, override IntExecute instead.

procedure Execute

Free  reintroduce

procedure Free

TerminateWaitFor  virtual

Utility method that combines a call to Terminate with a subsequent call to WaitFor.

procedure TerminateWaitFor

WaitFor  reintroduce

Blocks the current thread until the current event receives a signal.

function WaitFor: Cardinal
