im trying to create a progrm which takes a bmp image as a parameter (as an exercise), i have succeded in displaying the image but i would like the image to be diplayed until a key has been pressed, and i haven't had much luck. here is the code i work in visual studio not by choice: /* -- Include the precompiled libraries -- */ #ifdef WIN32 #pragma comment(lib, "SDL.lib") #pragma comment(lib, "SDLmain.lib") #endif # include "SDL.h" # include <stdio.h> # include <stdlib.h> void ShowBMP(char *file, SDL_Surface *screen, int x, int y); int x = 0,y = 0,i = 0; int main(int argc, char **argv) { /* start SDL */ if ( SDL_Init( SDL_INIT_VIDEO ) < 0 ) { fprintf( stderr, "Video initialization failed: %s\n",SDL_GetError( ) ); SDL_Quit( ); } /* set screen var */ SDL_Surface *screen; screen = SDL_SetVideoMode(1024, 768, 32, SDL_SWSURFACE|SDL_ANYFORMAT); if ( screen == NULL ) { fprintf(stderr, "Couldn't set 1024x768x32 video mode: %s\n",SDL_GetError()); SDL_Quit(); } /* set event var's */ SDL_Event event; SDL_WaitEvent(&event); if(event.type != SDL_KEYDOWN) ShowBMP(argv[1] , screen, x, y); /* quit SDL */ SDL_Quit( ); return 0; } void ShowBMP(char *file, SDL_Surface *screen, int x, int y) { SDL_Surface *image; SDL_Rect dest; /* Load the BMP file into a surface */ image = SDL_LoadBMP(file); if ( image == NULL ) { fprintf(stderr, "Couldn't load %s: %s\n", file, SDL_GetError()); return; } /* Blit onto the screen surface. The surfaces should not be locked at this point. */ dest.x = x; dest.y = y; dest.w = image->w; dest.h = image->h; SDL_BlitSurface(image, NULL, screen, &dest); /* Update the changed portion of the screen */ SDL_UpdateRects(screen, 1, &dest); /* Clear the image surface */ SDL_FreeSurface(image); }

Try replacing


SDL_Event event;
SDL_WaitEvent(&event);

if(event.type != SDL_KEYDOWN)
ShowBMP(argv[1] , screen, x, y);



with:

SDL_Event event;
int iDone = 0; // variable used to get out of the loop
// think, Am I done, 0 = no, 1 = yes

while(!iDone)
{
while(SDL_PollEvent(&event))
{
switch(event.type)
{
case SDL_KEYUP: // A key has been released
iDone = 1; // get out of the loop
break;
default: break;
}
}

ShowBMP(argv[1], screen, x, y);
}



Remember to put SDL_QUIT in the switch to take care of when you hit the close button.
