You have to start a thread to actually make it do something by calling the start() method, so intuitively you would expect there to be a matching stop() method; but there is no such thing. We'll see how to stop a thread then.
- [Instructor] In the previous video,…we started a thread.…We'll discuss how to stop a thread now.…How you ask?…Well, we will learn how to run a thread…as a background task, which is called a Daemon.…We have to start a thread to actually make it do something…by calling the start method.…So intuitively, we would expect there…to be a matching spot method,…but there is no such thing.…We will learn how to run a thread as a background task,…which is called a Daemon.…
When closing the main thread, which is our GUI,…all Daemons will automatically be stopped as well.…When we call methods in a thread,…we can also pass arguments and keyword arguments…to the method.…Let's do that now.…How to do it?…By adding args= to the thread constructor…and modifying the targeted method to expect arguments.…We could pass arguments to threaded methods.…
The arameter to args has to be a sequence,…so we will wrap our number in a Python list.…Let's modify our code.…Here, runT is a local variable,…which we only access within the scope of the method,…
