Title: Visual Studio Code - Arduino Extension (from Microsoft)
Post by: atuor on Dec 09, 2017, 10:41 pm
Hi All,

I'm trying out VScode (1.18.1) with Microsoft 0.2.10 Extension under Linux for Arduino projects (Arduino IDE 1.8.3).

The path to the Arduino IDE is defined and found, however I can't find out how to add the path for libraries

I used an example 'KeyboardMessage.ino' which has an #include "Keyboard.h"

I get an error Message saying :

#include errors detected. Please update your includePath. IntelliSense features for this translation unit (/home/atuor/Arduino/generated_examples/KeyboardMessage_1/KeyboardMessage.ino) will be provided by the Tag Parser.

I tried to edit 'c_cpp_properties.json' (below) as mentioned in a hint message, but it did not work  :smiley-confuse: . anyone an experience on that ?

Thanks  :smiley-lol:
