How come when I make a class into a thread, I cannot use the class as an object anymore?
I’m calling it as
public Thread foo = new FooThread();
where FooThread has function bar() which printfs “FOOBAR”.
Using threads, how can I call foo.bar() inside my main loop?
If FooThread extends thread, then you can still call foo.bar(), but you have to cast the pointer to the FooThread instance to be not a Thread but a FooThread.
Thread t = new FooThread();
//you can now start thread or do whatever
//you cannot, however do this:
//Because not ever thread has bar() method. only FooThreads do.
//but this will work:
//Alternatively, you can create your pointer as a FooThread type as opposed to simply a thread
FooThread t = new FooThread();
//this way you can
Oh, wow, I can’t believe I missed that, XD
