    Letting a program run as a task ( background )

    Hello,

    Like the topic says, I saw it a while ago on MSDN but forgot to bookmark it . Anyway what I saw on MSDN was how to make sure that you would not be able to alt-tab between your program and other programs running, thus letting it be just like any other process that really runs in the background.

    It was some kind of interrupt or something, anyway I dont seem to find it again on MSDN.
    So if anyone knows how to this, IŽd appreciate it if you would share it with me .

    thanks in advance,

    Ganglylamb.

    After four months, you can be assured that a thread is dead. Further, you should ask questions about C++ in the C++ forum, not the C# forum. However, be sure to ask a good question. Your original post is a simple plea for spoonfeeding. Instead, you should post code, showing us your attempt, and ask a specific question.
    If I did your homework for you, then you might pass your class without learning how to write a program like this. Then you might graduate and get your degree without learning how to write a program like this. You might become a professional programmer without knowing how to write a program like this. Someday you might work on a project with me without knowing how to write a program like this. Then I would have to do you serious bodily harm. - Jack Klein

    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.
