    In the thread add code to test a variable and exit if it is set.

    Please edit your code and wrap it in code tags. Use the #icon above input box.
    Or see: BB Code List - Java Programming Forums

    Default Re: Help in stopping thread (Packet sniffer)

    If you are going to use your own variable to indicate a request to stop then don't forget to make the variable 'volative' other wise the thread code may not see the changes made to it from other threads.

    Another robust approach is to use the interrupted flag. So within the thread code you would check the interrupted flag and return if set.

    if (Thread.interrupted()) {
       return
    }

    or maybe you want to keep doing something in a loop which you could aproach like this
    class InterruptableRunnable implements Runnable {
     while(!Thread.interrupted) {
          // do work in a loop
     } 
    }

    Then in in another thread, such as you GUI thread your code can stop the thread like this
    thread.interrupt();

    Another advantage of using the interrupted flag is that code serveral calls deeper from the runnable code can signal a request to be interrupted in a standard way, for example when performing some IO blocking operation

       try {
            socket.read();
      } catch (InterruptedException) {
          Thread.currentThread().interrupt();
    }

    Hope that helps
