Set/get total thread priority

Total thread priority is a sum of local thread priority and class priority of current process. Use SetPriorityClass function and Priority property of TThread type to set priority parameters. Use GetPriorityClass function and Priority property of TThread type to get information about total thread priority.

  TTestThread = class(TThread)

    j: Integer;
    { Private declarations }

    procedure GetInfo;
