Could I request that an option is added that auto opens the Serial Monitor after a successful upload please.

I have a debug monitor program  that I use for all debugging and it is tiresome to always have to manually select the Monitor after every compile.

Thanks

I haven't tried this myself, but it might be worth a try:

New version also lets you click the open serial monitor button while uploading smiley-grin and it schedules the opening of the monitor when the upload ends (if you forget to hold Ctrl key when uploading)

Looks real good! I'm still on 0.22, Is it version specific?

Yes smiley-sad only newer arduino.

But if you want to keep 0022 you can check the changes here https://github.com/eried/Arduino/commits/master and add them to your version smiley-grin

From the titles it is hard to find which ones I want. I am specifically interested in 2, 3, 5, 6, 9, 11, 12.

Yeah, almost all the enhancements are in the ".net upgrades". But I suggest you to go 1.0.1, I tried to keep my lovely 0023 but at the end, all new libraries are coming for the 1.0 :/ so it is like "upgrade or die"

Anyway, my modded version does not shares anything with your 0022, just set another Arduino folder in the options and you are ready to go! I have the 2 ones installed right now, no conflicts, no shared Sketches or libraries.

Well done eried that's a huge improvement.  Thanks

Can I request a hot key to select the 'Upload then open Serial Monitor' option please.

Or better... add it as a configuration that forces this as a default when the 'upload' button is pressed.

10/10
Thanks again

Ah - I did not think of that as a snag.   smiley-confuse

Ctrl 'right arrow'     ?

Any chance of a configuration setting to choose the default behaver of 'Ctrl U'   (ie with OR without the Serial Monitor launch)

Ctrl shift U ?

Already used, but mapping all the keys I found Ctrl+Alt+U unnused. So next week version will include that.

Thanks for that eried (I sent you a donation for this)

Unfortunately the combination Ctrl-Alt-U produces the ascii character 250 (ú) on my Pc running XP.
Which corrupts the source code without careful placing of the cursor  :smiley-cry

cheers

Oh, I didn't noticed that. There is another menu that uses alt, can you check it?
