eTaskGetTaskState problem

Posted by ramanuday on May 15, 2015

I tried to delete a task using vTaskDelete() and tried to obtain the task state of the deleted task using eTaskGetTaskState() function by passing the thread handle of the deleted function. It is returning the state as eReady(actually the state should be eDeleted as per my understanding). Can anyone please help me with this.

eTaskGetState() will only return eDeleted between the time that vTaskDelete() is called and the time that the idle task cleans up the stack and TCB used by the task. After that the handle no longer exists and using it in a call to eTaskGetTaskState() will not be meaningful.

Thanks for your reply. But I have a question... Can we check if the task is deleted ...? If possible how...?
