Inconsistant Documentation Of xTicksToWait In `Direct To Task Notifications`

Posted by pmckinnis on July 25, 2016

The xTicksToWait parameter in ulTaskNotifyTake() and xTaskNotifyWait() doesn't specify that portMAX_DELAY may be used to wait forever. So, is this supported? (I browsed the source, and It looks like it is).

Either way, it probably makes sense to update the documentation of ulTaskNotifyTake() and xTaskNotifyWait() to clarify.

Yes, in all the blocking APIs you can use portMAXDELAY to block indefinitely as long as INCLUDEvTaskSuspend is also set to 1.

Thanks for the feedback, the web page will get updated.
