Members

type
The event type. ElementNotify events are type AuEventTypeElementNotify.
serial
The serial ID of the event expanded from the 16 bit value sent by the server.
send_event
AuTrue if the event came from a SendEvent protocol request.
server
The connection to the audio server that the event was read from.
time
The server time in milliseconds when the event was generated.
flow
The ID of the flow that caused the event.
element_num
The index of the element that caused the event or AuElementAll to indicate the flow.
kind
The kind of notify event. This will be one of these constants: AuElementNotifyKindLowWater, AuElementNotifyKindHighWater, or AuElementNotifyKindState.
prev_state
The previous state of the element indexed by element_num. This will be one of these constants: AuStateStop, AuStateStart, or AuStatePause.
cur_state
The current state of the element indexed by element_num. This will be one of these constants: AuStateStop, AuStateStart, or AuStatePause.
reason
The reason for the notify event. This will be one of these constants: AuReasonUser, AuReasonUnderrun, AuReasonOverrun, AuReasonEOF, AuReasonWatermark, or AuReasonHardware.
num_bytes
The number of bytes to send or receive. Only valid if the the element indexed by element_num is an ImportClient or ExportClient.

Description

ElementNotify events are sent to client applications to notify them of a watermark condition or state change. If kind is AuElementNotifyKindLowWater, the ImportClient element indexed by element_num in flow is ready to receive num_bytes of audio data from the client application. If kind is AuElementNotifyKindHighWater, the ExportClient element indexed by element_num in flow is ready to send num_bytes of audio data to the client application. If kind is AuElementNotifyKindState, the element indexed by element_num (or flow if element_num is AuElementAll) has made a state transition from prev_state to cur_state triggering the event. Reguardless of kind, prev_state and cur_state contain the old and new states and reason contains the reason for the event.
