Re: Setting a test not run under a task

I'm a newbie at this and I am using Test Executive. I enable a timer interrupt to call  functiion1 and then call function2 to execute. While function2 is executing the timer interrupts, function1 executes and then calls a test to occur. How do I set the test that is being called, not to be executed under the current task? In other words, a test is to be called by an interrupt but it is listed under the current task I am executing and is being called as one of the tests under the task? Do I somehow need to create a test that is not under a task?

Re: Setting a test not run under a task

Add a WaitForTimer() call in the beginning of the test you want to wait for the timer. The wait procedure can wait:

Procedure WaitForTimer()
       WaitForEvent()  ! not consume 100% cpu
   until bTimer=True
   bTimer=False       ! reset the timer

The timer procedure should set  bTimer  to True if interrupt received.
