This configuration variable applies only to the ACUCOBOL-GT Thin Client. Using this variable, you can direct the thin client to buffer some requests received from the server and process them later. When you set this variable to 1, the thin client buffers the requests received between the time that the client sends an event to the server and the time that the server informs the client that it has started the related event procedure. The events are processed only after the event procedure starts in order to prevent the thin client from processing requests that generate more events before the first event procedure has started. The default value of TC_DELAY_PRE_EVENT_OPS is 0.

The buffering behavior described for this configuration variable was introduced as the default behavior in Version 6.1. Beginning with Version 7.2, the buffering behavior is turned off by default.
