Detailed Description

Provides functionality to trigger events after timeout.

event_timeout intentionally does't extend event structures in order to support events that are integrated in larger structs intrusively.


event_timeout_t event_timeout;
printf("posting timed callback with timeout 1sec\n");
event_timeout_init(&event_timeout, &queue, (event_t*)&event);
event_timeout_set(&event_timeout, 1000000);

Function Documentation

◆ event_timeout_clear()

void event_timeout_clear ( event_timeout_t event_timeout)

Clear a timeout event.

Calling this function will cancel the timeout by removing its underlying timer. If the timer has already fired before calling this function, the connected event will be put already into the given event queue and this function does not have any effect.

◆ event_timeout_init()

void event_timeout_init ( event_timeout_t event_timeout,
event_queue_t queue,
event_t event 

Initialize timeout event object.

[in]event_timeoutevent_timeout object to initialize
[in]queuequeue that the timed-out event will be added to
[in]eventevent to add to queue after timeout

◆ event_timeout_set()

void event_timeout_set ( event_timeout_t event_timeout,
uint32_t  timeout 

Set a timeout.

This will make the event as configured in event_timeout be triggered after timeout microseconds.

: the used event_timeout struct must stay valid until after the timeout event has been processed!
