Yes, I've attached a sample program at the bottom of this note. The program
will display the returned string from aqtGetLastEvent on the AquaTerm
window. However, if you change the "#if 1" to "#if 0", then you'll see that
aqtGetLastEvent always returns an event of 0.

Yes. I can't use waitNextEvent since that routine blocks. My application
would really be considered a stripcharting application, because it renders
sim data on the fly. Here's pseudocode for my app:
* check if new sim data exists
* if so, read the data and set the redraw_flag
* check if there are any user input events
* if so, process the event and set the redraw_flag
* if redraw_flag, then render a new image
Honestly, this all works fine if I call aqtRenderPlot before checking
events. However, if aqtRenderPlot carries a lot of overhead, I'd hate to
use it more than I have to.
Thanks again for all of your help.
<-- begin snippet -->
aqtAddLabel("Ready for event...", 100, 50, 0, AQTAlignCenter |
if (event != '0')
aqtEraseRect(0, 0, 200, 100);
aqtAddLabel(event, 100, 50, 0, AQTAlignCenter | AQTAlignMiddle);
<-- end snippet -->
