Alternatives to threads for maintaining GUI app responsiveness
why did we use threads?
Our single-threaded GUI app was freezing whenver we did dateabase reads and it looked like the app had crashed. Therefore we threaded the app and visual response significantly improved.
What alternatives are there to our problem
You had a problem, you solved it. Why are you looking for alternatives?
(Ps. Why, uniquely do you feel the need to ask your questions in
Big Bold Lettering?
Are they somehow more important than other peoples questions?)
