TTask in Delphi 10.2

not used TTask before and its a simple thing im trying to do.

While the main form executes a procedure (DoAnalyse) id like to display the TActivityIndicator on my main form without it slowing as the thread does the work. I used to use a progress bar but would prefer to use the more modern Activity Indicator.

I Have tried it two ways:

A simple:



Task := TTask.Create( procedure begin DoAnalyse; end); Task.Start;

it executes perfectly and my activity indicator behaves smoothly.

Problem is when the procedure is finished the main form is locked and doesn't respond at all. im guessing I have to put some kind of call back to the main thread but cant find out how to do it.

Any ideas?

TTask doesn't have an event when it stops running. Your task procedure needs to use TThread.Synchronize() or TThread.Queue() (or any other inter-thread mechanism of your choosing) to notify the main thread before it exits.

Otherwise, use TThread instead of TTask. TThread has an OnTerminate event.
