46  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: SketchBook Folder Path on: November 27, 2012, 07:50:56 am
Hi,

Sorry for the lack of response. It isn't possible to monitor questions in the arduino forum due to the volume of discussions.

It would be good to work through this issue in the visual micro forum which is dedicated for the visual studio plugin.

Having said that the plugin is designed for microsoft windows users and dev time is limited. Currently dev is working towards arduino 1.5 + chipKit, wiring etc.

We can't slow down dev for Apple Mac users but if you would like to help us get to the bottom of this issue then we will try to find the time.

The only setting that the Visual Studio plugin uses from the arduino ide is the "Sketch Book Folder" path. The simplest fix might be to let you set this path in the Visual Studio options thus removing the need for the plugin to look at the Arduino config.

Does this make sense? If so and if you would like to see this work completed then please raise a thread in http://www.visualmicro.com/forums

Thanks

Hi,

I hope to implement chipkit at the same time as arduino 1.5 and Teensy.

The Arduino work is planned for when I get my hands on a Due. Unfortunately after many requests to Arduino.cc they have failed to provide a Due, for which I was happy to pay. I have now ordered one from a distributor which is expected in about 30 days.

Maybe you can help clear up my confusion with ChipKit. Is a new version of the ChipKit IDE going to be released soon? I have had no response to this question http://www.chipkit.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=1495.

Did I put the question in the wrong place? I would rather do the work once not twice.

Reminder, the team testing the new Arduino debugging tool has grown to 400+ users. If you would like to join the team and receive a free license for this tool then sign up for the forum on http://www.visualmicro.com and include a request to join the debugger beta team.

The free Visual Studio plugin is the only 100% compatible plugin for Arduino. After installing Microsoft Visual Studio Professional you will have compiled your first Arduino sketch in under 10 minutes.

Compiles any Arduino sketch at the click of a button. Allows you to see what your Arduino is doing and why, discover what hardware is connected to your Arduino using I2c, Digital and Analog graphical displays. Includes hundreds of other features such as Arduino memory free memory and runtime memory usage reporting.



Includes support for Teensy and other non-arduino cores.

Visual Studio Professional can be obtained free for over 3 years. Read more here

So Lakes, How is that bloated Microsoft IDE? I see you used it in the end but does it do the job?

This might not be what you need but is some of what you ask for. If you can use windows then you can download a free copy of Visual Studio Pro for 3 years and subscribe to the Arduino Debugger beta team for a free software debugger.

The debugger allows you to inspect registers, variables and expressions on a running Arduino. It also comes with open source digital, analog pin visualizations. You can also extend the debugger by building your own Visualizations of any Arduino data.

It also supports updating variables and registers on a running Arduino. BUT be aware this is not a hardware debugger, it injects code into a temporary copy of your Arduino sketch during debug compile. Many people have found this debugger very useful but it is not a perfect solution.

All sorted now? Enjoying the system?

Thanks

Hi, your registration request was received a few minutes ago and you should now have access to the forum.

You have also not signed up for the debug program so you will not have the debug upgrade installed.

When you have your system compiling correctly feel free to apply for the debug tool

Thanks

Hi there, sounds like a setup problem. You will get help on the Visual Micro forum.

Did you register yet? http://www.visualmicro.com

Thanks

Hi, we have small language communication problems  smiley

1) Usb Lib

I will try the library on arduino 1.0 but I think you are happy using 1.0.1? Everything works okay for you?

2) Debugger

Please "Register" on visualmicro.com. When you register include a request to join the debugger beta team. You will then be given more instructions for the debugger.

The are many documents on visualmicro.com about the debugger, there is a small wiki and also this overview



After the beta program ends, only registered beta testers will be given a free debugger license

doh! Oh yeah, sorry I forgot the mcu setting isn't a -D

mcu=atmega328p
57  Development / Other Software Development / Re: BOARD preprocessor directives from IDE on: October 28, 2012, 09:57:10 am
If you switch on Preferences>Verbose and then re-compile, you will see the compile commands that Arduino is using.

Each compile command will contain a number of params, the ones that start -D are preprocessor constants that you can use. The selected board is one of them, the arduino version is another.

@westfw Good question.

I have made as much of this plugin (all the arduino stuff) a separate api and have ensured that all the Arduino/Project settings are not tied to any Visual Studio settings. So actually it could work with any IDE in the future.

Although Atmel Studio lacks a lot of the nice features of normal Visual Studio systems it isn't that far away in terms of what it might do for us. Much of the user interface provided by the plugin would probably work "as is" with Atmel Studio it might only be the areas that modify VS CPP properties (to detect Arduino sources and set board properties) that would need to change. This is an easy change because VS 2008 and VS 2010 use different CPP systems so the code is already conditional in this area. However with the proper support from Atmel we could really tap this stuff into their IDE and integrate it fully.

The problem is that Atmel are not a proactive company and their developer support is poor. I only have a few questions for them and have approached them a number of times. Each time I have been promised that developer support is planned for some future time. Not very helpful! I am sure I could work it out by myself but time is the limiting factor.

If anyone would like to help with the understanding of the Atmel side of things I would be more than happy to give it a go sooner rather than later.

So far, this project has cost a lot of time and money which makes it difficult to justify the addtional time for Atmel studio right now. For obvious reasons there is no support for this project from Arduino or Microsoft  smiley This is why the new Arduino debugger tool is not going to be free (but is free and in beta at the moment). I hope the revenue from the debugger funds the time and provides the motivation to make this plugin work with Atmel Studio.

@ambuj.

1)
Are you saying that Visual Studio compiles this project correctly for you with the Arduino 1.0.1 IDE?

2)
There was a problem with Arduino 1.0.0 and Visual Studio?

Thanks

I have found something interesting with this library if you use Verbose/Warnings settings.

This library causes 100's of warnings like the ones shown below. So many warnings cause it to take a few minutes to compile but it does compile okay.

If you have switched on "Verbose" or "Warnings" in the options I suggest that you switch them OFF again...

Tools>Options>Visual Micro>Compiler>Verbose = False
Tools>Options>Visual Micro>Compiler>Warnings = False

The example I tested, it does compile correctly. BUT, it produces so many warnings it looks like a bad error. but is not  smiley

Code:
message.h : Warning: only initialized variables can be placed into program memory area
message.h : Warning: only initialized variables can be placed into program memory area
parsetools.h : pBuf will be initialized after nStage
parsetools.h : arLenCntdn will be initialized after arLen
confdescparser.h : : In member function 'void ConfigDescParser<CLASS_ID, SUBCLASS_ID, PROTOCOL_ID, MASK>::PrintHidDescriptor(const USB_HID_DESCRIPTOR*)':
confdescparser.h : Warning: only initialized variables can be placed into program memory area
confdescparser.h : Warning: only initialized variables can be placed into program memory area
confdescparser.h : Warning: only initialized variables can be placed into program memory area
..
..
..
Compile OK

NB: You will see the same output in the Arduino IDE if you switch on "ArduinoIDE>File>Preferences>Verbose". So this library is best used without these settings in both Visual Studio and the Arduino IDE
