    Question C# 3.5 Visual Studio 2010: MultiThreading - Main Thread continue on signal

    Hi all!

    This is my very first post so dont hate me if i forget to include something.
    Currently i have build a bot in C#. Nothing Fancy, it connects and i can interact with the stuff on the channel.
    But now i would like to be able to insert commands in the commandline after connecting to the server.
    Ive succesfully seperated the code from the main class to a different class, which will be used in another thread. I create this thread in the main class/thread.

    So here is the deal:
    - Before actually connecting, i would like to send a message to the main thread so it can run other code making my console to be able to recieve user input.
    - Upon closing, i would like to send a terminate signal to the other thread.

    Now im a 'oke' C# guy but im still have a long way to go. This is my very first attempt on multithreading. I cannot find any tutorials on this subject that i can understand so hopefully some of you guru's are able to.

    If added some example code below. Please advice
    Many thanks in advance!

    code:



    Oke this is my main class:

    Code:
    namespace Lydic
    {
    	class LydicBot
    	{   
            private static void Main()
    	    {
                Thread ircConnectionThread = new Thread(GetIrcConnectionMethod());
                ircConnectionThread.Start();
    			// at this point i'd like to recieve the signal from the above thread to continue the following code:
    			executeCommand();
    	    }
            private static ThreadStart GetIrcConnectionMethod()
            {
                return ircConnection;
            }
            static void ircConnection()
            {
                connectionHandler Lydic = new connectionHandler();
            }
    		void executeCommand (string command)
    		{
    			if(String.IsNullOrEmpty(command))
    			{
    				Console.WriteLine("Input command:"); // 
    				string command = Console.ReadLine().ToString();
    				executeCommand(command);
    			} else {
    				// switch case stuff with commands
    			}
    		}
    	}
    }
    Ive created a second class called connectionHandler, wich basically includes the following:

    Code:
    namespace Lydic
    {
    	class connectionHandler
    	{
            private IrcClient irc = new IrcClient();
            private string server = "irc.geekshed.net";
            private int port = 6667;
            private string channel = "#lydic";
    
            private static void LydicBot()
            {
                connectionHandler demo = new connectionHandler();
            }
    
            public connectionHandler()
            {
                Console.WriteLine("Input server address (default: irc.warez-bb.org):");
                string serverAddress = Console.ReadLine();
    
                Console.WriteLine("Input server port (default: 6667):");
                string serverPort = Console.ReadLine();
    
                if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(serverAddress))
                {
                    server = serverAddress;
                }
    
                if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(serverPort))
                { //int serverPort = Convert.ToInt32(Console.ReadLine()); 
                    port = Convert.ToInt32(serverPort);
                }
                irc.OnConnected += new EventHandler(OnConnected);
    
                connectToServer();
            }
            public void connectToServer()
            {
                try
                {
                    irc.Connect(server, port);
                }
                catch (Exception e)
                {
                    Console.Write("[{1}] Failed to connect: {0}", e.Message, DateTime.Now.ToShortTimeString());
                    Console.ReadKey();
                }
            }
    
            void OnConnected(object sender, EventArgs e)
            {
                if (server == "irc.warez-bb.org")
                {
                    irc.SendMessage(SendType.Message, "NickServ", "identify DERP");
                }
                irc.Login("Lydic", "Lydic", 0, "Lydic");
                irc.RfcJoin(channel);
    	    // At this point i'd like to send a signal to my main thread to tell him that he can execute the other code, but the code below must be executed as well!
                irc.Listen();
            }
    	}
    }
