Dispatching events to the event queue.

Posted on 1997-05-28

I'm trying to generate an event and dispatch it to a component.  However, the only way I can find to do this is to use Component.deliverEvent() or Component.postEvent().  The problem with these functions is that they call Component.HandleEvent() directly.  Instead, I want to queue the event behind any other events currently waiting to be handled by the receivng component.  Is this possible and how do I queue and event?
