Yes you can add code into the idle, but the code must never attempt to block (call a delay function, or call an API function with a block time specified).

See http://www.freertos.org/RTOS-idle-task.html

Regards.

hi :

I set configUSE_IDLE_HOOK to 1 and define void vApplicationIdleHook( void ),, then put my code in the functions , that's all job I do ?

Yes, that's exactly what vApplicationIdleHook is there for.
