I have this code:

   ;; ...

It works fine unless the code is called when already in the minibuffer. In that case ivy--minibuffer-setup isn't called. Is there a way to achieve what I want: while in minibuffer, call read-from-minibuffer and call some code after the recursive minibuffer is entered?

  • Sounds like a bug.

  • Are you sure minibuffer-with-setup-hook isn't used when you start a recursive minibuffer? I think it is used for every minibuffer activation. Perhaps something on the hook raised an error?

Perhaps it is this part of the minibuffer-with-setup-hook macro code? It apparently removes the hook for recursive calls.

(lambda ()
  ;; Clear out this hook so it does not interfere
  ;; with any recursive minibuffer usage.
  (remove-hook 'minibuffer-setup-hook ,hook)
  (funcall ,fun))

Try doing without minibuffer-with-setup-hook and just doing the add-hook and remove-hook (at the end) yourself.
