TIdThread.Start Method

Starts or resumes execution of a thread.

procedure Start; virtual;

Start is a procedure used to start or resume execution for the thread instance. 

Start examines the value in Stopped to determine if the Options property should be updated to reflect thread termination. When Stopped is True, Options will include the value itoStopped when the thread has been Terminated. Otherwise, the value itoStopped is excluded from the values in Options. 

Start calls Resume to allow a suspended thread to Terminate normally. 

No action is performed in Start when the thread has not been Stopped.
