Hi thanks for looking into the issue (which is driving me nuts)

I've defines the following Receiving state:

namespace sc = boost::statechart;
namespace mpl = boost::mpl;

struct EvNewFrame : sc::event< EvNewFrame > {};
struct EvNeedFlowControl : sc::event< EvNeedFlowControl > {};
struct EvDoneReceiving : sc::event<EvDoneReceiving> {};

struct Idle_Receiving;
struct ParseFrame;
struct Receiving : ICANMonitorClient, sc::state< Receiving, USDTTransmitter,
Idle_Receiving >
  typedef mpl::list<
    sc::custom_reaction< EvAbort >,
    //sc::deferral< EvNewFrame >,
    sc::transition< EvNewFrame, ParseFrame >,
    sc::transition< EvDoneReceiving , Finished> > reactions;

  Receiving( my_context ctx );

  sc::result react( const EvAbort& );

  *virtual void UpdateNewCANMessage(CANMessageId pMsgFilter, TT_CANMsg*

  TT_CANMsg* newCANMessage;

  std::vector<_u8> wb;
  bool DoneReceiving;


The UpdateNewCANMessage is a callback function defined in the
ICANMonitorClient interface. This method is being called when new data
frames arrive (that works) but then I want to notify the state machine to
proceed to its next state effectively by sending an EvNewFrame event but
nothing happens.

I tried this->post_event( EvNewFrame() ); // no effect
and this->post_event( boost::intrusive_ptr<EvNewFrame>( new EvNewFrame( ) )
); // no effect

(this->terminate() still works in this method on the other hand)
