Use this function to wait indefinitely for the next available event.


int SDL_WaitEvent(SDL_Event* event)

Function Parameters


the SDL_Event structure to be filled in with the next event from the queue, or NULL

Return Value

Returns 1 on success or 0 if there was an error while waiting for events; call SDL_GetError() for more information.

Code Examples

You can add your code example here


If event is not NULL, the next event is removed from the queue and stored in the SDL_Event structure pointed to by event.

As this function implicitly calls SDL_PumpEvents(), you can only call this function in the thread that initialized the video subsystem.
