How reliable is postMessage


#1

Can a message send with postMessage be lost?
Just wondering because this seems to happen now and then in our case. We’ve only seen it till now on OSX. We are using Juce revision 684.

Well, it could only lose a message if the OS message queue dropped it for some reason, and that seems unlikely, though nothing is impossible… Unfortunately, even if it does happen, then there’s nothing I change to prevent it - there are no flags to set that would affect this.

Are you seeing it under heavy load?

Hi, sorry for the late reply.
Yes we experience this under heavy load, and it seems to happen in Windows too. But it’s good to know that i can occur that messages can get lost, well it’s not good but at least i know now :wink:
