Description Taqi 2013-04-24 08:48:27 EDT
When Calling ScheduleWithContext(context, MilliSeconds(1.0), NULL) an error is raised "call of overloaded function is ambiguous", while calling the thread-unsafe version Schedule(MilliSeconds(1.0), NULL) compiles successfully.

I needed to schedule to schedule dummy events from a thread that's why I passed NULL as function ptr, I can make ScheduleWithContext compile by declaring a null pointer void (*f)(void) = 0 and passing f as function ptr.

But I expected both the thread safe & unsafe versions to behave similarly to NULL values!
