 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi, I'm an Arduino board user for midi projects.
As Arduino is often used with Midi, I think it maybe very usefull is monitor baud rate could be set to 31250 bauds.
One other suggestion is to let the monitoring mode activated even after an upload.

Yes, it would be cool.  Unfortunately, the library (RXTX) we're using to do serial communication doesn't support 31250 - and I'm not sure the FTDI drivers do either (though you can modify them on Windows so that what appears to your software to be 38400 is actually talking to the hardware at 31250).  

The second suggestion is interesting.  I can see why it would be convenient to be able to continue to monitor the serial port as you update your code.  Right now, however, the toolbar buttons follow the convention that pressing one turns off the others, and I'm not sure if it's worth breaking that convention.  Also, there's the question of what to do with the output from the compilation and upload process.  Does it go in the middle of the serial monitor output?  Do we clear the console when the upload starts, but leave the upload messages there when we start dumping the new output?  Do we hide the messages when the new output starts?

I don't want to discourage you - just raising some issues that we'd need to figure out.  Please respond if you have thoughts, and keep making suggestions.

I will try this tips. But where can I change this ? Is there any setting files (sorry I haven't yet try to 'hack' Arduino) ?

Sorry if was not clear enough, I meant that the monitoring stay active even after an upload, not during the upload. The problem is that monitoring is no more activated after an updload. When I'm developping a code and need debugging then recoding then re-uploading, it's a pain to have to reactivate the monitor button. I see two options, a detached and always active monitoring window or to insert the output from the compilation and upload process in the debug traces but in a different color.
Like on some IDE (like Eclipse, to speak Open Sources), the console include application debugging and compilation output.
