Operating system and interrupts¶
LVGL is not thread-safe by default.
However, in the following conditions it's valid to call LVGL related functions:
Tasks and threads¶
If you need to use real tasks or threads, you need a mutex which should be invoked before the call of
lv_timer_handler and released after it.
Also, you have to use the same mutex in other tasks and threads around every LVGL (
lv_...) related function call and code.
This way you can use LVGL in a real multitasking environment. Just make use of a mutex to avoid the concurrent calling of LVGL functions.
Try to avoid calling LVGL functions from interrupt handlers (except
lv_disp_flush_ready()). But if you need to do this you have to disable the interrupt which uses LVGL functions while
lv_timer_handler is running.
It's a better approach to set a flag or some value and periodically check it in an
