abort thread while waiting for callback

I'm hoping someone can help me better understand the scenario below

In a multi-threaded application, say a worker thread makes an asynchronous
call and specifies a callback method. But before the callback is executed,
the thread is aborted by its creator. What is the expected behavior for
this scenario? Does the thread stay alive until the callback is executed?
If an exception is thrown, can it be caught?

Your help is much appreciated

We are working in C#/Winforms and are using asynchronous client-side web service calls (the Begin... and End... methods supplied by the web reference creation). Many of these calls are contained in Windows forms that the user can close before the web service call has completed. This seems to be working fine, but I wanted to check to see if anyone has experienced any problem with this. Specifically this is what I need to know: Is it...

Hi I'm having some weird threading issues.. almost at random, if I dare change a line of my code, the shutdown sequence gets messed up. I'm using a thread to receive data from the network, that I suspend and resume whenver needed. In order to properly shut down the program every thread has to be aborted. So, I override OnClosing(CancelEventArgs e) in my main GUI program, and have it perform the following on the thread: if...

I use a Synclock in a secondary thread and also stop the thread using the abort method. If the abort occurs while the thread is in the Synclock will the SyncLock always be released before the thread stops or do I need to add some extra code to avoid Synclock staying on after the thread has been stopped. Thanks Fred

ok This is my main. Pretty much it goes through each category and starts up 4 worker threads that then ask for groups to gether from. My problem is that when the thread gets done it keeps the mysql connections open so I end up with quite a few at the end. Is there a different way that I should do this? class Program { static string categories = { "emulation" , "audio" , "console" , "anime" , "xxx" , "tv" , "pictures" , "video" };

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
