Arduino/UWP Debugging via Bluetooth?
Sep 1st, 2018 at 1:26am
 
I am developing a UWP app that communicates with an Arduino Uno via bluetooth.  The Arduino sketch is Standard Firmata.  Software Serial does not seem to allow me to use TX/RX pins other than 0&1, hence I cannot use the USB serial monitor.  Is debugging of the Arduino sketch possible under these circumstances?  I wasn't successful in finding documentation for this scenario.  Perhaps someone could point me to the appropriate documentation location if debugging is possible under these circumstances.

Thanks!

Firmata is a special case and might conflict with this solution ...

There is a doc here for debug using alternative pins

Thanks, Tim. I guess I will experiment with a second USB port for debugging.

Is your development in VS C++ in VS 2017?  Do you have a repo of this?

No, I am using C# in VS 2017 for the UWP app,  C++ on the arduino side.
