Legacy event loop

API Reference

Functions

esp_err_t esp_event_send(system_event_t *event)

Send a event to event task.

Other task/modules, such as the tcpip_adapter, can call this API to send an event to event task

Note
This API is part of the legacy event system. New code should use event library API in esp_event.h

Return
ESP_OK : succeed
Return
others : fail
Parameters
  • event: Event to send

esp_err_t esp_event_process_default(system_event_t *event)

Default event handler for system events.

This function performs default handling of system events. When using esp_event_loop APIs, it is called automatically before invoking the user-provided callback function.

Note
This API is part of the legacy event system. New code should use event library API in esp_event.h

Applications which implement a custom event loop must call this function as part of event processing.

Return
ESP_OK if an event was handled successfully
Parameters
  • event: pointer to event to be handled

void esp_event_set_default_eth_handlers(void)

Install default event handlers for Ethernet interface.

Note
This API is part of the legacy event system. New code should use event library API in esp_event.h

void esp_event_set_default_wifi_handlers(void)

Install default event handlers for Wi-Fi interfaces (station and AP)

Note
This API is part of the legacy event system. New code should use event library API in esp_event.h

esp_err_t esp_event_loop_init(system_event_cb_t cb, void *ctx)

Initialize event loop.

Create the event handler and task

Note
This API is part of the legacy event system. New code should use event library API in esp_event.h

Return
  • ESP_OK: succeed
  • others: fail
Parameters
  • cb: application specified event callback, it can be modified by call esp_event_set_cb
  • ctx: reserved for user

system_event_cb_t esp_event_loop_set_cb(system_event_cb_t cb, void *ctx)

Set application specified event callback function.

Note
This API is part of the legacy event system. New code should use event library API in esp_event.h
Attention
1. If cb is NULL, means application don’t need to handle If cb is not NULL, it will be call when an event is received, after the default event callback is completed
Return
old callback
Parameters
  • cb: application callback function
  • ctx: argument to be passed to callback
