What do you expect?

Code to reproduce

The crash always appears in the second of these two functions. The second is called immediately after the first function.
The crash does not occur every time, but after a while, these two functions work normally for a while, and suddenly appear.
They won’t be called at the same time because I used a mutex.

void desktop_set_temp(int temp)
    lv_label_set_text_fmt(topcont_temp_label, "%d℃", temp);

void desktop_set_humi(int humi)
    lv_label_set_text_fmt(topcont_humi_label, "%d%%", humi);

Screenshot and/or video

Can you find what line 60 is of this file? That will be useful for tracking down the issue.

line 60:
void lv_draw_label(const lv_area_t * coords, const lv_area_t * mask, const lv_style_t * style, lv_opa_t opa_scale,
const char * txt, lv_txt_flag_t flag, lv_point_t * offset, lv_draw_label_txt_sel_t * sel,
lv_draw_label_hint_t * hint, lv_bidi_dir_t bidi_dir)
line 65:
if (txt[0] == ‘\0’) return;
crash on line65,this is lvgl’s code

So the text pointer being passed to lv_draw_label is NULL. Perhaps you are running out of memory? lv_label_set_text_fmt allocates a buffer to store the text in.

but I still have hundreds of kb of memory:joy:

That’s weird then. Can you add something that prints an error inside this if statement and see if it fails?

you mean like this?
if(ext->text == NULL) {
printf(“error! ext->text==NULL\n”);

Yes; exactly.

Crashed again and it didn’t print

Weird. My guess would be that the ext structure is getting corrupted by something else in your code. Do you have watchpoints available? Can you put a watchpoint on &ext->text and see when its value changes?

I never broke anything in ext elsewhere because I only used lv_label_set_text_fmt from beginning to end
I would like to ask, if the external thread uses lv_label_set_text_fmt and lv_task also uses lv_label_set_text_fmt, there is no mutex between lv_task and the external thread, but the external thread itself has a mutex, will it crash?

The monitoring point was correct just before the crash

There needs to be a mutex on the thread that calls lv_task_handler (which runs lv_tasks), and the thread that calls lv_label_set_text_fmt. If that’s how you have it set up, there should be no concurrency issues.

I meant that some other part of your application may be unintentionally corrupting part of the ext structure, due to an invalid pointer or some similar issue.

Do you see any suspicious if you enable LV_USE_LOG in lv_conf.h?

I have opened the log, but the log does not print any information

I made some attempts. In the first attempt, my two update functions only update the flag bit. Lv_label_set_text_fmt is executed after the flag bit is detected by one lv_task so that it will not crash. In the second attempt, my two update functions are executed There is a time interval between them so that they do not crash

I think I have solved it, I did not add a mutex on lv_task_handler before

I made the following changes and the program runs fine

xSemaphoreTake(ui_xSemaphore, portMAX_DELAY);

Thank you very much for your kind help!!!

Glad to hear you solved it!
