Hi!

I want to run some kind of loading (refreshing text) while programs works in background.
I'm tried with thread but it not works propertly.

This is my algorithm:

1. enter data
2. start loading thread
3a. if data OK stop loading thread and show result
3b. else stop loading thread and return to 1

Thread in run method have infinity loop "while(true)". I stops thread with thread.inrerupt();
Problem is when i enter wrong data second time. When enter data second time thread first stops and then starts! (but first is called start).

I know that threads can do this but how can i solve this?
Thanks!

I don't think we can help you without some (relevant) code.

I think you're trying to re-invent the wheel. Look at the classes in the java.util.correct package.
With a Future you can complete background tasks in a much cleaner way.

You mean java.util.concurrent, right?
