    duration of function

    Im creating software for control a device , but i have problem.

    Data = 0;
    i = 0;
    while( i < NumberOfGate ){
    	if(FALSE == C8855ReadData( 	hC8855,
    		Form1->Memo2->Lines->Add("Read data ERROR.");
    	Data = CntData + Data;
    	 if( Terminated ) break;
    DataArray[z] = Data ;
    Function C8855ReadData() read out data from device. Sometime is data lost by transmission of signal. At that time function (and software) to freeze, because still waiting to data.
    I need fixed this problem.

    Exist a function according any maximal time to executing my function
    ( C8855ReadData() )?

    thx .... PoolO

    You will need to put this data grabbing into a thread of it's own, so you can wait for completion and if it does not finish in a set amount of time, do something about it (cancel, retry or whatever).

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Apart from the spawning a thread, another way is to use asynchronous read/write APIs.
