"uint8_t" not defined
Nov 12th, 2021 at 9:24am
 
Hi,

I'm using the STM32duino library with VS2019 and VM 2021.108.0. When using a STM32F4 board type 'uint8_t' is not defined. '...vsarduino.h' is very small. There are some definitions missing like '#define ___int8_t_defined'. I think, this results in some incorrect structured files in the library.

What files do I have to modify to force VM to define '___int8_t_defined' e.g.?

A Question to the project explorer: For most libraries header files of the libraries are included in folder 'Externe Abhängigkeiten' (this is German and means 'external dependencies'. The folder 'Header Files' only contains the header files that are defined directly in the project. With the STM32duino many of the library header files are shown in the folder 'Header Files' instead of 'external dependencies'.

How can I change this?

Kind regards
Red Baron

Thanks for the report.

Could you attach the full build log, after running Build > Clean, with the Verbose and Show Build Properties enabled (shown in box at the top of this page) so we can replicate the issue accurately.

Please also provide a screenshot of the solution explorer showing the issue described, and confirm an example library this happens with.

I was unable to reproduce the problem with the project explorer. The problem was that I often changed the board type on the project. With a new project, the project explorer works as expected. Smiley

The 'uint8_t' problem is still there. The compiler compiles the project without an error message. So ist a problem with intellisense. I attached the build output.

This is the content of vsarduino.h:

/*
     Editor: https://www.visualmicro.com/
                 This file is for intellisense purpose only.
                 Visual micro (and the arduino ide) ignore this code during compilation. This code is automatically maintained by visualmicro, manual changes to this file will be overwritten
                 The contents of the _vm sub folder can be deleted prior to publishing a project
                 All non-arduino files created by visual micro and all visual studio project or solution files can be freely deleted and are not required to compile a sketch (do not delete your own code!).
                 Note: debugger breakpoints are stored in '.sln' or '.asln' files, knowledge of last uploaded breakpoints is stored in the upload.vmps.xml file. Both files are required to continue a previous debug session without needing to compile and upload again

This is the path to the library: http://dan.drown.org/stm32duino/package_STM32duino_index.json

------------------

Another problem is that in the board list there is a board that does not exist: STM32F4 Boards (Arduino_STM32). See the attached screenshot. I attached the board.txt file too.

The issue with the int8 datatypes should be resolved in the latest release, available from the top of the below board:
