INCLUDE_vTaskSuspend and INCLUDE_xTaskResumeFromISR must be defined as 1 for this function to be available. See the RTOS Configuration documentation for more information.
A function to resume a suspended task that can be called from within an ISR.
A task that has been suspended by one of more calls to vTaskSuspend() will be made available for running again by a single call to xTaskResumeFromISR().
xTaskResumeFromISR() is generally considered a dangerous function because its
actions are not latched. For this reason it should definitely not be used to
synchronise a task with an interrupt if there is a chance that the interrupt
could arrive prior to the task being suspended, and therefore the interrupt being
lost. Use of a semaphore, or preferable
a direct to task notification, would avoid this eventuality.
A worked example that uses a direct to task notification
Handle to the task being readied.
pdTRUE if resuming the task should result in a context switch, otherwise pdFALSE. This is used by the ISR to determine if a context switch may be required following the ISR.
void vAFunction( void )
// Create a task, storing the handle.
xTaskCreate( vTaskCode, "NAME", STACK_SIZE, NULL, tskIDLE_PRIORITY, &xHandle );
// ... Rest of code.
void vTaskCode( void *pvParameters )
// The task being suspended and resumed.
for( ;; )
// ... Perform some function here.
// The task suspends itself.
vTaskSuspend( NULL );
// The task is now suspended, so will not reach here until the ISR resumes it.
void vAnExampleISR( void )
// Resume the suspended task.
xYieldRequired = xTaskResumeFromISR( xHandle );
if( xYieldRequired == pdTRUE )
// We should switch context so the ISR returns to a different task.
// NOTE: How this is done depends on the port you are using. Check
// the documentation and examples for your port.
