Wait for a thread to terminate.


Source position: threadh.inc line 151

function WaitForThreadTerminate(

  threadHandle: TThreadID;

  TimeoutMs: LongInt



WaitForThreadTerminate waits for a thread to finish its execution. The thread is identified by it's handle or ID threadHandle. If the thread does not exit within TimeoutMs milliseconds, the function will return with an error value.

The function returns the exit code of the thread.

Not all platforms support the timeout parameter: the Unix platforms (with threads support based on pthreads) do not support timeout, and will wait indefinitely for the thread to exit.
