stop_all_threads()#

Stop all running threads.

Examples#

def thread1():
    py5.println('thread 1')


def thread2():
    py5.println('thread 2')


def setup():
    py5.frame_rate(10)
    py5.launch_repeating_thread(thread1, name='thread 1', time_delay=1.2)
    py5.launch_repeating_thread(thread2, name='thread 2', time_delay=1.8)


def draw():
    py5.println('running threads:', ', '.join(py5.list_threads()))
    if py5.frame_count == 50:
        py5.stop_all_threads()

Description#

Stop all running threads. The wait parameter determines if the method call will return right away or wait for the threads to exit.

When the Sketch shuts down, stop_all_threads(wait=False) is called for you. If you would rather the Sketch waited for threads to exit, create an exiting method and make a call to stop_all_threads(wait=True).

Signatures#

stop_all_threads(
    wait: bool = False,  # wait for thread to exit before returning
) -> None
