Writing multithreaded application in C# in pretty easy. The following are the steps to be followed while writing a multithreaded program.

 

Step 1: Define Namespace

Since in .NET, threading functionality is defined in System.Threading namespace we have to define it before using any thread class.

 

using System.Threading

 

Step 2: Start a thread

The Thread class of System.Threading namespace represents a Thread object. By using this class object, you can create new threads, delete, pause, and résumé threads. The Thread class creates a new thread and thread. Start method starts the thread. The general syntax for initializing a new instance of the thread class is given blow.

 

using System; 

using System.Collections.Generic; 

using System.Text; 

using System.Threading; 

namespace MyFirstConsoleApplication 

{ 

          class Program 

          { 

                    static void Main(string[] args) 

                    { 

                             new Program(); 

                             for(int j=0;j<10;j++) 

                             { 

                                       Console.WriteLine("Main Thread" + j.ToString()); 

                                       Thread.Sleep(1000); 

                             }

                    } 

                    //When Start will called, the new thread will begin executing the ThreadStart delegate //passed
                    in the constructor. Once the thread is dead, it cannot be restarted with //another call to start.
 

                    public Program() 

                    { 

                             Thread thread = new Thread(new ThreadStart(WriteData)); 

                             thread.Start(); 

                    } 

                    /// <summary> 

                    /// WriteData is a function which will be executed by the thread 

                    /// </summary> 

                    protected static void WriteData() 

                    { 

                             string str; 

                             for (int i = 0; i <= 10; i++) 

                             { 

                                       str = "Secondary Thread" + i.ToString(); 

                                       Thread.Sleep(1000); 

                                       Console.WriteLine(str); 

                             } 

                    } 

          } 

} 

 

And the output will be:
