Errors from Documentation

01 May 2018, 19:07

I get errors, when pasting this code from the example documentation

Code: Select all

NewThread("Msgbox `% variable:=`"Thread`"")

The following code from the documentation does not show a message in the Message box. I just want to get a general idea of how multithreading works. I just switched to AHK_H a few days ago, simply for its multithreading. But there are errors left and right, when I copy/paste examples from the documentation.

Code: Select all

Command  Example: NewThread "MsgBox Message from thread."   
Function Example: ThreadID := NewThread("MsgBox Message from thread.")

The message boxes are emtpy. No text

Code: Select all

ahkdll:=AhkThread("Msgbox `% variable:=`"Thread`"") ; Loads the AutoHotkey module and starts the script.
While !ahkdll.ahkgetvar.variable
  Sleep 50 ; wait until variable has been set.
MsgBox % ahkdll.ahkgetvar.variable ; Display content of variable in thread
ahkthread_free(ahkdll),ahkdll:="" ; Stop execution in thread and free resources.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
