CComAutoThreadModule Class

As of ATL 7.0, CComAutoThreadModule is obsolete: see ATL Module Classes for more details.

   class ThreadAllocator = CComSimpleThreadAllocator 
class CComAutoThreadModule :
   public CComModule




This class is obsolete, having been replaced by the CAtlAutoThreadModule and CAtlModule derived classes. The information that follows is for use with older releases of ATL.

CComAutoThreadModule derives from CComModule to implement a thread-pooled, apartment-model COM server for EXEs and Windows services. CComAutoThreadModule uses CComApartment to manage an apartment for each thread in the module.

Derive your module from CComAutoThreadModule when you want to create objects in multiple apartments. You must also include the DECLARE_CLASSFACTORY_AUTO_THREAD macro in your object's class definition to specify CComClassFactoryAutoThread as the class factory.

By default, the ATL COM AppWizard (the ATL Project Wizard in Visual Studio .NET) will derive your module from CComModule. To use CComAutoThreadModule, modify the class definition. For example:

class CMyModule : 
public CComAutoThreadModule<CComSimpleThreadAllocator>
   LONG Unlock()
      LONG l = CComAutoThreadModule<CComSimpleThreadAllocator>::Unlock();
      if (l == 0)
         PostThreadMessage(dwThreadID, WM_QUIT, 0, 0);
      return l;

   DWORD dwThreadID;
