Get the current period of a timer

Posted by cemer on March 28, 2016


Is there a way to read the current period of a timer? I am planning to change the period of some timers depending on the situation. However, it would also be good to see what is the current period before changing it.


Get the current period of a timer

There isn't currently an API function to do this, although there is a feature request outstanding on it, so I have just added the following to timer.c, but not yet tested (or even compiled) it:

~~~~ TickTypet xTimerGetPeriod( TimerHandlet xTimer ) { Timert *pxTimer = ( Timert * ) xTimer;

configASSERT( xTimer );
return pxTimer->xTimerPeriodInTicks;

} ~~~~
