C Specification

XrResult xrPollEvent(
    XrInstance                                  instance,
    XrEventDataBuffer*                          eventData);

Parameters

xrPollEvent polls for the next event and returns an event if one is available. xrPollEvent returns immediately regardless of whether an event was available. The event (if present) is unilaterally removed from the queue if a valid XrInstance is provided. On return the eventData parameter is filled with the event’s data and the type field is changed to the event’s type. Runtimes may create valid next chains depending on enabled extensions, but they must guarantee that any such chains point only to objects which fit completely within the original XrEventDataBuffer pointed to by eventData.
