Posted by msimmerl on December 10, 2015


Is it possible, if i stop a FreeRTOS timer by xTimerStop to get the remaining time of timer?

Best regards msimmerl

Remaining time of timer

Posted by rtel on December 10, 2015

The time at which a timer will expire is stored in Timer.xTimerListItem.xItemValue - but there is no API function to return this value. If this is of interest then please open a feature request in source forge for it - however any new API function would not be quite as simple as just returning the remaining time compared to the current time, as the time at which the timer expires may have overflowed from the current time.
