Many of you are waiting for the upcoming Xojo and it will be worth the wait (trust me).

But in the meantime you can already check something regarding threads.

Yes, threads are possible with Xojo but with Xojo it is not possible to change or read data GUI controls from within a thread.
In the past this was already bad coding practice but it was 'allowed' by the RB compiler. Doing so makes you app unstable so just don't do this.

Joe Ranieri wrote a simple commandline tool to check if your compiled apps are changing things it shouldn't.

You can read and download this tool at http://www.realsoftwareblog.com/search? ... date=false


I really recommend everyone using threads doing this !!!
