SYNOPSIS

C]
#include <allegro5/allegro.h>

#define ALLEGRO_GET_EVENT_TYPE(a, b, c, d) AL_ID(a, b, c, d) ]

DESCRIPTION

Make an event type identifier, which is a 32-bit integer. Usually, but not necessarily, this will be made from four 8-bit character codes, for example:
C]
#define MY_EVENT_TYPE   ALLEGRO_GET_EVENT_TYPE([aq]M[aq],[aq]I[aq],[aq]N[aq],[aq]E[aq])
]

IDs less than 1024 are reserved for Allegro or its addons. Don[aq]t use anything lower than C]ALLEGRO_GET_EVENT_TYPE(0, 0, 4, 0)].
You should try to make your IDs unique so they don[aq]t clash with any 3rd party code you may be using. Be creative. Numbering from 1024 is not creative.
If you need multiple identifiers, you could define them like this:
C]
#define BASE_EVENT   ALLEGRO_GET_EVENT_TYPE([aq]M[aq],[aq]I[aq],[aq]N[aq],[aq]E[aq])
#define BARK_EVENT   (BASE_EVENT + 0)
#define MEOW_EVENT   (BASE_EVENT + 1)
#define SQUAWK_EVENT (BASE_EVENT + 2)

/* Alternatively */ enum { BARK_EVENT = ALLEGRO_GET_EVENT_TYPE([aq]M[aq],[aq]I[aq],[aq]N[aq],[aq]E[aq]), MEOW_EVENT, SQUAWK_EVENT }; ]
