[][src]Struct sdl2::EventSubsystem

pub struct EventSubsystem { /* fields omitted */ }


impl EventSubsystem[src]

pub fn flush_event(&self, event_type: EventType)[src]

Removes all events in the event queue that match the specified event type.

pub fn flush_events(&self, min_type: u32, max_type: u32)[src]

Removes all events in the event queue that match the specified type range.

pub fn peek_events<B>(&self, max_amount: u32) -> B where
    B: FromIterator<Event>, 

Reads the events at the front of the event queue, until the maximum amount of events is read.

The events will not be removed from the queue.


use sdl2::event::Event;

let sdl_context = sdl2::init().unwrap();
let event_subsystem = sdl_context.event().unwrap();

// Read up to 1024 events
let events: Vec<Event> = event_subsystem.peek_events(1024);

// Print each one
for event in events {
    println!("{:?}", event);

pub fn push_event(&self, event: Event) -> Result<(), String>[src]

Pushes an event to the event queue.

pub unsafe fn register_event(&self) -> Result<u32, String>[src]

Register a custom SDL event.

When pushing a user event, you must make sure that the type_ field is set to a registered SDL event number.

The code, data1, and data2 fields can be used to store user defined data.

See the SDL documentation for more information.


let sdl = sdl2::init().unwrap();
let ev = sdl.event().unwrap();

let custom_event_type_id = unsafe { ev.register_event().unwrap() };
let event = sdl2::event::Event::User {
   timestamp: 0,
   window_id: 0,
   type_: custom_event_type_id,
   code: 456,
   data1: 0x1234 as *mut libc::c_void,
   data2: 0x5678 as *mut libc::c_void,


pub unsafe fn register_events(&self, nr: u32) -> Result<Vec<u32>, String>[src]

Registers custom SDL events.

Returns an error, if no more user events can be created.

pub fn register_custom_event<T: Any>(&self) -> Result<(), String>[src]

Register a custom event

It returns an error when the same type is registered twice.


See push_custom_event

pub fn push_custom_event<T: Any>(&self, event: T) -> Result<(), String>[src]

Push a custom event

If the event type T was not registered using register_custom_event, this method will panic.

Example: pushing and receiving a custom event

struct SomeCustomEvent {
    a: i32

let sdl = sdl2::init().unwrap();
let ev = sdl.event().unwrap();
let mut ep = sdl.event_pump().unwrap();


let event = SomeCustomEvent { a: 42 };


let received = ep.poll_event().unwrap(); // or within a for event in ep.poll_iter()
if received.is_user_event() {
    let e2 = received.as_user_event_type::<SomeCustomEvent>().unwrap();
    assert_eq!(e2.a, 42);

pub fn event_sender(&self) -> EventSender[src]

Create an event sender that can be sent to other threads.

An EventSender will not keep the event subsystem alive. If the event subsystem is shut down calls to push_event and push_custom_event will return errors.

impl EventSubsystem[src]

pub fn clone(&self) -> EventSubsystem[src]

pub fn sdl(&self) -> Sdl[src]

Obtain an SDL context.
