i'm trying to get the examples as well as the example code at http://www.slideshare.net/roxlu/openframeworks-007-events running. But it seems that the events won't be fired and onResultsUpdate will never called.

The following code snippets are my implementation of the CustomEventExample. ResultsUpdateEvent === GameEvent

void RequestHandler::setup() {
    ofAddListener(ResultsUpdateEvent::events, this, &RequestHandler::onResultsUpdate);

void RequestHandler::onResultsUpdate(ResultsUpdateEvent &e) {
    cout << "ResultsUpdateEvent: "+e.message << endl;
void RequestHandler::updateResults() {

    static ResultsUpdateEvent newEvent;
    newEvent.message = "BUG HIT";

    cout << "fire event" << endl;
    cout << newEvent.message.c_str() << endl;

    ofNotifyEvent(ResultsUpdateEvent::events, newEvent);

Thank you for your bug report!

I cannot reproduce your problem with the event examples - all examples in the event folder work correctly on my machine (Ubuntu).

It may be that you ran into a change to the events API in 0071, see the changelog:

ofEvents -> ofEvents() singleton - this means that projects which register calls using "ofEvents." will need to replace these with "ofEvents()." (note the parentheses).

Please report back if thsi was the solution.

i downloaded the current 072 release from the of website and everything works fine now. I got the previous from github. so maybe there is something wrong.

I also use a github version (the develop) branch. Also, current master should normally be functionally identical to the OF website download, so that should not make a difference.
