WaitForMultipleObjects - 2 timeouts?

thready asked
Last Modified: 2015-03-02
Hi Experts,

I have the need for 2 separate timeouts as events coming back from WaitForMultipleObjects.  The normal timeout with WAIT_TIMEOUT is done.. How can I add a 2nd timeout event?  Perhaps a handle with some timer function that sets the event after a certain amount of time?
