Upload buttons for COM and OTA
Jun 8th, 2022 at 6:40pm
I usually use OTA to update my code. When I'm debugging I always have the serial debug window open connected via a serial port to the device.

Sometimes I manage to introduce a bug that makes my board crash (rare I know but it happens to us all..)
I then have to change from the IP address to the COM port to upload to the board. Then when it's all ok again I have to change back to the IP address.

It would be great to have the option to upload EITHER via OTA or to COM directly from the toolbar buttons to save the hassle of switching to and from COM to IP address.

Sorry for the delay. Open the Serial Monitor using the "Other" option. That allows you to leave the IP address as the main port selection.

Visual Micro supports multiple Serial Monitors therefore ports can be monitored unrelated to the current project.
