SDL_WaitEvent

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

Syntax

int SDL_WaitEvent(SDL_Event* event)

Function Parameters

event

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

Remarks

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.
