Hi,

I am new to SWT. I got a project to develop a chart that change their values according to time. so the chart must change with the time. To do this changing part I used a thread. The program is work with thread correctly but I cant do any other operations.It means the program only do the chart changing part (no multi process) so what I want to do now. I want to do parallel process's.

Thread code:



Please help me.

Thank you.

you didn't start your thread.

final Thread applicationThread = new Thread("applicationThread") {
public void run() {
while(threadController==true){
try {
display.syncExec(print);
Thread.sleep(1000);
} catch (Exception e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}
}

}
};

applicationThread.start();
