Optional Message Viewers

by Visual Micro 5. May 2012 16:47

Visual Studio provides a number of text message views during a arduino debug session. Configuration of which windows are used to view messages is available using the debug options sub menu on the active debugger Serial window as shown below.

Messages can be directed to any combination of 3 windows:-

  • Serial Viewer
  • Message Viewer
  • Trace Viewer

The example above would allow messages to be appear in a dedicated message window (as shown below) and also in the trace window (as shown in previous posts).

Below shows a "message only" window which is free of trace messages

Below shows a "trace only" window which is free of messages. The example below was created by unticking the "Trace" sub menu shown at the start of this post.
