The NdisWaitEvent function puts the caller into a wait state until the given event is set to the Signaled state or the wait times out.
BOOLEAN NdisWaitEvent( PNDIS_EVENT Event, UINT MsToWait );
A pointer to an initialized event object for which the caller provides the storage.
The number of milliseconds the caller will wait if the event is not set to the signaled state within that interval. A value of zero specifies that the caller will wait for the event indefinitely.
NdisWaitEvent returns TRUE if the event is in the signaled state when the wait is satisfied.
NdisWaitEvent returns control to its caller when the given event is signaled or the specified MsToWait interval expires, whichever is sooner. If the event is currently in the signaled state when this call occurs, NdisWaitEvent returns control immediately.
A miniport driver typically calls NdisWaitEvent from its MiniportInitializeEx and MiniportHaltEx functions. A protocol driver typically calls NdisWaitEvent from its ProtocolBindAdapterEx and ProtocolUnbindAdapterEx functions.
