Thread names for windows fix?

Postby Gamma009 » 05 Aug 2013, 22:13

In the course of using Poco, I have discovered that naming a Poco::Thread does not actually set the thread's name in windows. This means that in the Visual Studio C++ debugger, I see a threads list that looks something like this:

Code: Select all

ID   | Name
5324 | Poco::ThreadImpl::runnableEntry
6868 | Poco::ThreadImpl::runnableEntry

...when, based on my code, it ought to look like this:

Code: Select all

ID   | Name
5324 | IPC Thread
6868 | Controller Thread

It's not that big of a deal, as I can dig through the thread's callstack and look at the values of local variables to find out which thread the debugger is talking about, but is there any way we could get a fix for this in the next release of Poco?

Re-compile Foundation with -DPOCO_WIN32_DEBUGGER_THREAD_NAMES, then this feature will be enabled (in _DEBUG builds only).
