Well, second person that asks this maybe I should add it for the next version. Any suggestion from other user, maybe against this?


Maybe, have a place in preferences where you can put a check mark to enable the "auto serial monitor" feature.

make that  a third person

id like the button to upload to be configurable
  load
or load and open serilal port

How about 2 separate buttons one is "upload" the other is "upload with serial monitor"?

Another button is doable, but I personally prefer

1) new option in preferences.txt to "revert" the upload mode, i.e. modifier key now upload without serial monitor
2) checkbox in preferences, near the "verbose" things. Default = official ide

I will add this to next version

______________________________

I got more information about the next release, I am not really sure what to do yet, probably the best path to follow is: update to 1.0.2... maybe just changing the version number because I don't believe they enhanced anything.

1.0.2 will be released soon, this is the legacy AVR IDE.

1.5 will be the next version, supporting other architectures and they (arduino team) say it is improved and faster. Will replace the legacy ide.

I have installed the 1.5 IDE and I am disappointed.Even very old bug with fixing the delayed Tools menu was not fixed, no possibility to autoopen serial monitor etc. No significant changes except for addition of Arduino Due libraries/compilation etc.

Regarding the fact that AER does not work on Leonardo (i.e. upload to Arduino Leonardo does not work) popping the message asking to fix the COM port and then leaving with error:

Serial port 'COM15' already in use. Check your board or Click fix on next upload.

The reason is that the upload process on Leonardo is different. Leonardo has USB controller built into the processor core so it disapears from the list of ports on every reset and reset is required to enter the bootloader. The detailed information on this is here:

http://arduino.cc/en/Guide/ArduinoLeonardo#toc12

What is relevant to IDE is:

... because the Leonardo's serial port is virtual, it disappears when the boards resets, the Arduino software uses a different strategy for timing the upload than with the Uno and other boards. In particular,
1) IDE is initiating the auto-reset of the Leonardo (using the serial port selected in the Tools > Serial Port menu). It does it by opening the virtual com port at 1200 baud and then closing it. This is a signal for firmware to reset the processor of Leonardo, and the virtual (CDC) serial/ COM port disappears from the list.
2) the Arduino software waits for a new virtual (CDC) serial / COM port to appear - one that it assumes represents the Leonardo bootloader. It then performs the upload on this newly-appeared port.

=( but you have a Due? I want to go with the 1.5 for sure, but I beta feels like nobody will trust a "mod" from a beta version. With about 40 downloads per day I think I can't release some unfinished stuff as the new version.

For the moment I migrated all my machines to win8 and I am still not "productive" working on the mod... to bad I have to install java -sigh- in my shiny win8  :smiley-sad-blue:

That would be my preference.

It is possible, but for now I am keeping the "setting to force the monitor" when you press the upload button (ctrl+upload, does not opens the monitor in this scenario). No new UI setting in preferences for the moment.

OK, I spent a lot of hours this afternoon updating all the enhancements to the new source for 1.0.2
I tested it for a while (and it works well with my mega), but if you find something, just report it here:

1.0.2 Update (2012-11-06)
http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,118440.0.html

-Fully updated to official 1.0.2 version (but keeping all things, new JDK, new WinAVR/avrdude, pretty icon, Bluetooth responsiveness, etc)
-Some workarounds for Leonardo board in the AvrDude Wrapper. (somebody with a Leonardo please test this!)
-Setting to revert the function of Upload button to Upload and open Monitor (install the IDE, then open idesettings_v1.0.2.txt file):
Code: [Select]
serial.open_monitor=true
-Other small fixes

Jupp works for me. Thanks.

1 or 2 things I thinking about

1st  Numbers for the code lines so it is easier to find errors in the code
2nd the possibility to set self the counter when the Estimated memory line apears red (in percent maybe)
3rd an option to deactivate the start splashscreen to get faster to work

And a dream of me an Board-Generator so I can generate the Lines for the Board.txt from an Editor mask and pulldown selections for some parts and autointegrate it.

Damm!

Serial Monitor is brocken no Serial output from the Leonardo

That is the top item in my wishlist.

I have a couple homemade Arduinos that use the 328 (non-P) AVR. It is ok if I want to use a serial-2-usb adapter, but when use ICSP (USBasp) to program then, I have to manually edit the boards.txt file to change the signature.

I also have a couple Atmega1284 (both P and non-P), which aren't standard  - as you all know - for arduino clones.

Being able to properly create my boards in the arduino IDE would be great, with all the required files properly edited to include them. I haven't takne the time to study what are all the required changes to support the Atmega1284 and 328 non-P, but I do acknowledge that at this moment I lack both the time to do it and some of the required background knowledge.
