Is it allowed to call vTaskSuspend from timer task?

Posted by bupthebroker on May 9, 2016

Is it allowed to call vTaskSuspend from timer task? I am getting some strage behavior when i attempt this. Deferring the call to a normal task resolves the issues.

Regards

The timer task must not itself be suspended (or placed into the blocked state by, for example, a call to vTaskDelay()), but you can suspend any other task from the timer task. Likewise the Idle task must never be suspended.
