Description.  This method is used to obtain a new Event object representing an event, given the event's name.

getEvent() allocates memory each time it is successfully called. You should keep in mind that successive invocations of this method using the same event name return multiple, distinct objects.

The NDB API does not track allocated event objects, which means that the user must delete each Event created using getEvent(), after the object is no longer required.


const Event* getEvent
      const char* eventName

Parameters.  The eventName, a string (character pointer).

Return value.  A pointer to an Event object. See Section 2.3.6, “The Event Class”, for more information.
