JScript for the .NET Framework

Multi-threading in javascript

Can any body tell me how to use the library to virtually work like threading in javascript? Code is given below...

namespace (System.)Threading
The (System.)Threading namespace provides the facilities for both a Timer and a faux-Thread/ThreadPool construct. Use the Timer class when you need something that fires at regular intervals (such as an animation or clock); use the Thread and ThreadPool classes when you need the ability to start background processes.
enumeration Threading.ThreadState
Unstarted, Stopped, Pending, Running, Suspended, Waiting, Finished.
enumeration Threading.ThreadPriority
Lowest, BelowNormal, Normal, AboveNormal, Highest.
class Threading.Timer
The Timer class provides an object-oriented timer mechanism. It (like all the classes in the Threading namespace) is based on the use of Host.setTimeout/setInterval. In addition to fields, the Timer class supports a number of events; see below for details.
new Threading.Timer()
Creates a new instance of the Timer class.
Threading.ThreadState Status
Returns the current status of the Timer.
returns intReturns the current interval used by the Timer, in milliseconds.
SetTick(int n)
returns voidSets the current interval, in milliseconds, used by the Timer. If the Timer is running, the interval will be changed on the next OnTick event.
returns voidStarts the timer.
returns voidStops the timer.
returns voidSuspends the timer; the timer can be resumed by using Resume().
returns voidResumes a suspended timer.
returns voidResets the timer to its initial state; the interval is reset to its default (1000 ms) as well.
Events.Listener OnTick, OnStart, OnStop, OnSuspend, OnResume
Standard event handlers (i.e. new Events.EventHandler(fn)) can be attached to any of these event listeners; see Events for details.
class Threading.Thread
The Thread class acts as a wrapper for any functions you would like executed in a background process.
new Threading.Thread(Function fn)
The function passed as the sole argument should take one parameter—a reference to the Thread object firing the function.
Threading.ThreadState ThreadState
The current state of the Thread.
Threading.ThreadPriority Priority
The priority of the Thread; a higher priority will cause a ThreadPool to execute this Thread before other Threads of lower priority.
Exception LastException
The last exception thrown during the course of the Thread's execution.
returns voidExecutes the Thread's inner function. All exceptions are handled; if an exception is thrown during the course of execution, a reference to the exception will be placed in the LastException property.
class Threading.ThreadPool
The ThreadPool class acts as the engine which fires any threads added to the pool. Only one ThreadPool can ever be instantiated at a time.
new Threading.ThreadPool([int mxthrs, [int intvl]])
Parameter mxthrs indicates the maximum number of threads to be executed at any one time in the ThreadPool; if omitted, the default of 16 is used. Similarly, intvl sets the default firing interval for the ThreadPool; if omitted, the default value of 60000 ms (1 minute) is used. If passing an interval, set it to be fairly high.
static Threading.ThreadPool.GetCurrent()
Returns a reference to the current ThreadPool; if there are none, returns a new instance of ThreadPool. Use this method to get a reference to a ThreadPool as opposed to the constructor; the ThreadPool class was designed as based on a Singleton pattern. Note that the static method GetCurrent instantiates a ThreadPool object using the default parameters.
returns intReturns the maximum number of threads to be executed during every timer iteration of the ThreadPool.
returns intReturns the current number of available thread slots within the ThreadPool.
returns intReturns the interval at which each iteration of the ThreadPool's execution is fired.
QueueUserWorkItem(Threading.Thread thr)
returns booleanAdds a Thread object to the current internal thread pool.
RemoveQueuedUserWorkItem(Threading.Thread thr)
returns booleanRemoves the passed Thread object from the current work queue, if found.
returns voidStarts the ThreadPool execution.
returns voidStops the ThreadPool execution.
returns voidAborts all threads currently pending execution, and stops the ThreadPool. If there are threads in the queue, Abort will requeue those threads.
returns voidAborts the ThreadPool and resets it to its initial state; any threads waiting to be executed will be dropped from the execution queue.
Sleep(int int)
returns voidSuspends execution of the ThreadPool for int milliseconds.
        Can you give me an example code in javascript in which you use Threading namespace?
Please try it..

great ! i'd like have it too, please please skrosoft#hotmail.com
Hey thats gr8
But can u send me the running code..at pamya4u#gmail.com
Thanks and Regards
great ! i'd like have it too, please please thitin_c#hotmail.com
thank you
Wow !!! , can u please send it to me too... I'd like to have it..., please send to mcalvinbautista#yahoo.com.
thank you...
Gentlemen: this is not (I repeat NOT) an Microsoft JS library, but something I wrote back in 2003 as part of the long-defunct f( m ) project, the aim of which was to bring .NET/C#-like structure to pure ECMAScript.
Again, it's defunct, and has been for a long time.
If you're still interested in some sort of pure JavaScript construct that will enable you to run "background processes" (and I use the term here lightly and somewhat jokingly, since JS is single-threaded, always has been and probably always will be), you can take a look at the Dojo Toolkit, of which both of these objects (Timer and ThreadPool) have been ported:
The Dojo Toolkit (http://dojotoolkit.org) is a server-agnostic JS library, and is the successor in many ways to f( m ); I highly suggest that if you're interested in doing things like this, you take a look at it.

The best javascript multi threading exercise I have come across so far is Real Javascript Multithreading Using iFrames Practical and no rubbish
