STOP capability?

Question asked by VRFuser on Aug 10, 1997

I am trying to implement a global stop capability in my program that will
shut everything down if the operator needs to. I used a separate thread in
the main to set a global variable and then I test that global variable
through out the program. This works until I do a showpanel function. Once
the panel comes up the separate thread stops and I can no longer set the
variable.

I know I can put the stop function in all my pop up panels, but I would like
to implement it once in the main display. I know there was a lot of
discussion about this a couple of months back but I can not find those
discussions.

Any suggestions?

Thanks
