void wait_for_acknowledgments(Duration_t max_wait) that blocks where there is no writer

I am using the following call in my application void wait_for_acknowledgments(Duration_t max_wait). However I noticed the call only blocks when there is a matched reader to my writer and when the reader isnt online for some reason, it just goes through as if the messages were sent to a reader and never blocks. Is there any API call for RTI that will sit and block until a reader comes online and then the message is sent?

Hi,

You can wait until the DataWriter has some discovered and matched some DataReaders. This community posting describes some strategies for doing: https://community.rti.com/kb/why-does-my-dds-datareader-miss-first-few-samples

You can also take advantage of the "Required Subscripions" feature. See section "6.3.13 Required Subscriptions" of the Core Libraries and Utilities uses's manual (version 5.1) https://community.rti.com/rti-doc/510/ndds.5.1.0/doc/pdf/RTI_CoreLibrariesAndUtilities_UsersManual.pdf
