Cancelling an action in progress
I've been there before. Since there is no Addressof operator you can't
perform call backs. So Createthread API becomes useless to emVB.
That long process that anoys me is the Replication with SQL CE if IIS where
SQL CE Agent is waiting is down. Then my app keeps on running for ever to
perform replication. Timeout properties only take care of the part between
SQLCE Agent on IIS and SQL Server but between Pocket PC and IIS nothing is
coming. Even if not connected to the net at all it keeps on trying for ever.
We jsut got to learn C++ then we can perform callbacks and all other neat
things and our problems are solved.
