Hi all,
Can any one tell me why this following code is not working.

#include <Windows.h>
#include <iostream>
#include <string.h>

using namespace std;

//Just a function
DWORD WINAPI StartThread1(LPVOID iValue)
{
	int iStart = 0;
	for(int i=iStart;i<=10000;i++)
		cout<<"i = "<<i<<endl;
	return 0;
}

//My Class
class ThreadTest
{
public:
	ThreadTest();
	DWORD WINAPI StartThread(LPVOID iValue = "0");
	void MainFunction();
};

ThreadTest::ThreadTest()
{
}

DWORD WINAPI ThreadTest::StartThread(LPVOID iValue)
{
	char lszParam[3];
	sprintf(lszParam,"%s",(char *)iValue);
	int iStart = atoi(lszParam);
	for(int i=iStart;i<=iStart+10000;i++)
		cout<<"i = "<<i<<endl;
	return 0;
}

void ThreadTest::MainFunction()
{
	HANDLE hThread;
	DWORD dwGenericThread;
	char lszThreadParam[3];
    strcpy(lszThreadParam,"0");
    hThread = CreateThread(NULL,0,StartThread,&lszThreadParam,0,&dwGenericThread);	//Gives error
    //hThread = CreateThread(NULL,0,StartThread1,&lszThreadParam,0,&dwGenericThread);	//works
    if(hThread == NULL)	{
		DWORD dwError = GetLastError();
        cout<<"SCM:Error in Creating thread"<<dwError<<endl ;
        return;
	}
	WaitForSingleObject(hThread,INFINITE);
	TerminateThread(hThread, 0);
}

//Program execution starts here
void main()
{
	ThreadTest thread;
	thread.MainFunction();
}

I am really frustrated with this. can any one tell me where i am making mistake.
Thank you.

Its not working because thread functions must be either static alss members or functions outside any class. Address of a non-static class method can not be passed to any win32 api function. Make StartThread() static and the compiler will probably take it.

Thank you very much, that solved that problem. actually my requirement is i should be able to call another class function inside the StartThread function, when i make this as a static it is not possible can you advise me any other way of doing this? the following code explains my requirement

#include <Windows.h>
#include <iostream>
#include <string.h>

using namespace std;
//Class contains the function that needs to be accesed
class NeedstoBAccessed
{
public:
	NeedstoBAccessed();
	void printValue(int x);   //function need to accessed
};

NeedstoBAccessed::NeedstoBAccessed()
{
}

void NeedstoBAccessed::printValue(int x)
{	
	for(int i=x;i<=10000;i++)
		cout<<"i = "<<i<<endl;
}
//My Class
class ThreadTest
{
public:
	NeedstoBAccessed objNeedstoBAccessed;
	ThreadTest();
	static DWORD WINAPI StartThread(LPVOID iValue = "0");
	void MainFunction();
};

ThreadTest::ThreadTest()
{
}

DWORD WINAPI ThreadTest::StartThread(LPVOID iValue)
{
	objNeedstoBAccessed.printValue(10);
	return 0;
}

void ThreadTest::MainFunction()
{
	HANDLE hThread;
	DWORD dwGenericThread;
	char lszThreadParam[3];
    strcpy(lszThreadParam,"0");
    hThread = CreateThread(NULL,0,StartThread,&lszThreadParam,0,&dwGenericThread);
    if(hThread == NULL)	{
		DWORD dwError = GetLastError();
        cout<<"SCM:Error in Creating thread"<<dwError<<endl ;
        return;
	}
	WaitForSingleObject(hThread,INFINITE);
	TerminateThread(hThread, 0);
}

//Program execution starts here
void main()
{
	ThreadTest thread;
	thread.MainFunction();
}
