I’m porting a cross-platform GUI thingus to Haiku, and need a way of getting/dispatching more events before MessageReceived() has returned. Reentrant message handling, you might call it. (This is to give the illusion of a blocking API call, when behind the scenes events are still being processed)
Is this possible from within a BLooper as it stands, or do I need to come up with my own solution? I don’t think it would be too difficult, but I wanted to check with the experts before I overly complicate this.
edit: I should add that I’ve already tried experimenting with the looper’s message queue, but it seems to be stuck. Hence my asking here whether it’s possible in the first place.
