Hi,

I do a lot of debugging using the serial port.
Currently when I do an upload, it automatically closes the serial monitor of the IDE, it would be nice if there is an option (checkbox) that would load/open the Serial Monitor automatically after a successful upload of the code into my target.

You might consider opening this as a feature request at the bug tracker: http://code.google.com/p/arduino/issues/entry

Someone already requested this enhancement:

http://code.google.com/p/arduino/issues/detail?id=311

but it is marked as "WontFix" - that sounds like a rejection of the idea.

I do understand it is a 'minor' thing compared to the whole Arduino software project but it makes debugging much easier (faster).

I would suggest: if the Serial monitor has been opened before upload then it should be reopened. So no change in any menue has to be done.

That would be my preference as well, and it seems the simplest to implement.
I have the sources, so I may try sometime (although I don't technically know how to program in Java...)
