setting the task starting order

Posted by ogh on September 7, 2015


I'm asking mysefl how to set the task starting order without using task notification or semaphore? I've three task with same priority (and these should have the same prio) and I want that one of these task start before the two other (because this should get some values from other system and these are used by other task).

I create taks in the starting order but it doesn't change.

Thanks for your help

You could

Create all three tasks, then suspend two of the tasks before the scheduler is started, then unsuspend the tasks one at a time after the scheduler has started.


Just create one task, then have that task create the next task when it is ready, and have the created task create the third task when it is ready.
