TickType_t xTimerGetExpiryTime( TimerHandle_t xTimer );
Returns the time at which the software timer will expire, which is the time at which the
timer’s callback function will execute.
If the value returned by xTimerGetExpiryTime() is less than the current time
then the timer will expire after the tick count has overflowed and wrapped back
to 0. Overflows are handled in the RTOS implementation itself, so a timer’s
callback function will execute at the correct time whether it is before or after
the tick count overflows.
The timer being queried.
If the timer referenced by xTimer is active,
then the time at which the timer
will next expire is returned (which may be after the current tick count
has overflowed, see the notes above).
If the timer referenced by xTimer is not active
then the return value is undefined.
static void prvAFunction( TimerHandle_t xTimer )
/* Calculate the time that remains before the timer referenced by xTimer
expires. TickType_t is an unsigned type, so the subtraction will result in
the correct answer even if the timer will not expire until after the tick
count has overflowed. */
xRemainingTime = xTimerGetExpiryTime( xTimer ) - xTaskGetTickCount();
