The question is actually in the title.

I'm using a Timer app to send Values to a shift register per SPI.
I would like to receive commands through serial to control the process.
Starting the timer is not the problem. Stopping it is. I guess I have to enable interrupts inside the timer interrupt callback function. But how do I do it in dave 4.3.2?

Thank you!

Is this possible?
Set a global flag in the ISR.
Then stop the timer in the main loop.

That's what I'm wondering.

I'm stoppinng the timer in the main loop and not in the interrupt. When I receive the corresponding command I stop the timer in the main loop. But every time I get a status failure for the stop command. The timer keeps going through the value pattern I set to send till it is finished. I can only stop it inside the interrupt
when it gets a certain conditioon


You mean I could create a global variable and when I receive the stop command I change the flag and every time the interrupt is triggered I check the flag status and stop if the flag is active?

thanks
