Good question, hopefully someone else will answer as I don't know.
There might be some sample code that tells you with SimpleIPC
somewhere out there as that help documentation in the IDE might
be using it.. in the lazarus code itself if you can find it.

BTW what are you using OnIdle for if you want to tell me?
I'm trying to find more uses for it.

Maybe search the related lazarus code for OnIdle to see if it's
using it.
