Ok to use 'END' in a thread?

I have a program that runs a thread and I just tried to use 'end' in the thread rather than the main program and it ended the program no probs (Win10+FB1.01) so just wondering if this is ok to do (seems to be) as it suits my program better :)

Re: Multikey and Win10 Pro 64bit

Win10 and DSHOW

Well, bummer that my video playing code does not work in Win10 Pro (ver. 10.0.17134) and I think it's because they've dropped directshow somewhere along the way so question is: What do you use to play video in FreeBasic now? I've tried the example program in Freebasic x64 (test.bas) and that just er...

Stopping System Messages in Consol

How do you stop the messages from showing in your consul program? eg. When doing a shell 'copy' command the system will always report "1 file copied" or when you run a program the program itself might have a message too and print that in consol so i want to stop these messages from appeari...

Re: Program Reducing

cheers fxm

Initially i thought since this one time code was about 1/4 the overall size of the .bas i would save 1/4 on the .exe eg. 80k but not so, and not even half that, so apart from that it would be a good learn about dlls, no point worrying about it :)
