Run thread during test

I need some help,

I'm using a test system for automotive circuit testing with Ateasy 8.

It's a normal Ateasy application with tasks and test steps.

During production I make electrical tests and communication (via I2C bus).

I'd like to terminate the test steps, with only communication code, parallel with the other test steps.

So I copied the code from these test steps in one PROCEDURE and I made one common test step.

In the test step I call create thread methode and terminate thread methode to make run the new PROCEDURE.

It's seems it's not working. If I put a breakpoint in the PROCEDURE the first 2 or  3 line are terminanted and it's jumping to the next test steps.

Can you support me to solve this issue?

Thank you!

Re: Run thread during test

Are you watching the correct thread?
Go to View > Threads to open the thread window. It will allow you to switch threads and step through each one as they are running side by side.

Re: Run thread during test

Thank you for your help, I solved this issue, it was the misundestanding of way of using threads in Ateasy.

I thought that the purpose of CreateThread method is to set up a thread, and TerminateThread to start it or activate it.

In this case I need just CreateThread methode and it's working fine.
