eTaskGetState() is missing

We’re using v. 7.2.0. I want to call eTaskGetState() in my application, but my FreeRTOSConfig.h file has no reference to an “INCLUDE_eTaskGetState” or even the older “INCLUDE_eTaskStateGet”. Where can I find this function? Is there another way to determine whether a task is suspended, given its handle?

The ‘Task’ at the beginning of the function’s name indicates that it is defined in tasks.c. If you search for eTaskStateGet in tasks.c you will find the function is still there.

If INCLUDE_eTaskGetState is not defined in your FreeRTOSConfig.h file then INCLUDE_eTaskGetState will be given its default value of 0 - so you will need to add it to your FreeRTOSConfig.h file if you want to use the function.
