Using the Thread Pool Functions

Using the Thread Pool Functions

This example creates a custom thread pool, creates a work item and a thread pool timer, and associates them with a cleanup group. The pool consists of one persistent thread. It demonstrates the use of the following thread pool functions:


#include <windows.h>
#include <tchar.h>
#include <stdio.h>

//
// Thread pool wait callback function template
//
VOID
CALLBACK
MyWaitCallback(
    PTP_CALLBACK_INSTANCE Instance,
    PVOID                 Parameter,
    PTP_WAIT              Wait,
    TP_WAIT_RESULT        WaitResult
    )
{
    // Instance, Parameter, Wait, and WaitResult not used in this example.
    UNREFERENCED_PARAMETER(Instance);
    UNREFERENCED_PARAMETER(Parameter);
    UNREFERENCED_PARAMETER(Wait);
    UNREFERENCED_PARAMETER(WaitResult);

    //
    // Do something when the wait is over.
    //
    _tprintf(_T("MyWaitCallback: wait is over.\n"));
}


//
// Thread pool timer callback function template
//
VOID
CALLBACK
MyTimerCallback(
    PTP_CALLBACK_INSTANCE Instance,
    PVOID                 Parameter,
    PTP_TIMER             Timer
    )
{
    // Instance, Parameter, and Timer not used in this example.
    UNREFERENCED_PARAMETER(Instance);
    UNREFERENCED_PARAMETER(Parameter);
    UNREFERENCED_PARAMETER(Timer);

    //
    // Do something when the timer fires.
    //
    _tprintf(_T("MyTimerCallback: timer has fired.\n"));

}
