UI threading with MFC
I've created a thread that auto-saves some text in a control every 30 seconds. However, it's not very good code and I've never done threading before.
Currently, the code in the threads Run() function looks something like this...
There is a timer elsewhere that flips m_bRunning to TRUE causing the WM_AUTOSAVE message to be sent. The function that handles that sets m_bRunning back to FALSE.
This is a pretty ugly setup and the while-loops for m_bRunning are clearly not ideal as they just sit and spin on the CPU.
How else could I execute this code and then put the thread to sleep for a defined period of time before executing again? I've read in numerous places that Sleep() is not a very good thing to do in UI threads for some reason...
Thanks for your help

I've since changed the code to the following...
So no more timer and the thread utilizes Sleep(). Anyone have any thoughts? :|
