I got a trick to use WaitForInputIdle in my last question from Wyn(an expert here).
I get below from SDK:
WaitForInputIdle
The WaitForInputIdle function waits until the given process is waiting for user input with no input pending, or until the time-out interval has elapsed.

My quesition is what indeed "no input pending" means above?

It means no message in message queque or what?

Plz comment and I will judge soon.

Appreciate your help.
Thx.
