void vTaskSuspend( TaskHandle_t xTaskToSuspend );
INCLUDE_vTaskSuspend must be defined as 1 for this function to be available. See the RTOS Configuration documentation for more information.
Suspend any task. When suspended a task will never get any microcontroller processing time, no matter what its priority.
Calls to vTaskSuspend are not accumulative - i.e. calling vTaskSuspend () twice on the same task still only requires one call to vTaskResume () to ready the suspended task.
|xTaskToSuspend ||Handle to the task being suspended. Passing a NULL handle will cause the calling task to be suspended.|
void vAFunction( void )
// Create a task, storing the handle.
xTaskCreate( vTaskCode, "NAME", STACK_SIZE, NULL, tskIDLE_PRIORITY, &xHandle );
// Use the handle to suspend the created task.
vTaskSuspend( xHandle );
// The created task will not run during this period, unless
// another task calls vTaskResume( xHandle ).
// Suspend ourselves.
vTaskSuspend( NULL );
// We cannot get here unless another task calls vTaskResume
// with our handle as the parameter.
