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_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 initilalize
[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 miliseconds.

: the used event_timeout struct must stay valid until after the timeout event has been processed!
[in]event_timeoutevent_timout context onject to use
[in]timeouttimeout in miliseconds
