chipKIT MAX32 - Serial Monitor

Hello, I'm using the chipKIT max32.
The problem is that on ARDUINO IDE i can't communicate with the serial monitor but i can send the blink example.
On the MPIDE i cant see the serial monitor but on the arduino ide it doesnt display anything
Help please.

Please try this:

  1. Upload this sketch to your max32 board:
    void setup() {
      Serial.begin(9600);
    }
    
    void loop() {
      Serial.println("hello");
      delay(1000);
    }
    
  2. Select Tools > Serial Monitor from the Arduino IDE's menus.
  3. Select 9600 from the baud rate drop down menu near the bottom right corner of the Serial Monitor window.

Do you now see "hello" being printed to the output pane of Serial Monitor once a second?

Hi there,
The serial monitor doesn't work on the chipKIT MAX 32 through the ARDUINO IDE.
But it does work on MPIDE.

On both IDE's i can program the BLINK example but on the Arduino IDE the serial monitor doesn't spit anything

Here the code used:

void setup() {
Serial.begin(9600);
}
void loop() {
Serial.println("Hello Arduino Forum");
delay(1000);
}

Merging with @juliaidiada's identical post. Are you two working on a project together, or what?

Hi pert that code doesn't solve it. As i said the code linked is the same as i used but it doesn't work.
I selected the baud ratio on both of ides but it only works on the MPIDE. Please Help

I haven't seen many ChipKit discussions here on the Arduino forums. Try over in the ChipKit forums: Discussions · chipKIT32/chipKIT-core · GitHub

Um. The Serial Monitor ought to be the Serial Monitor. I can't think of any reason that it would not work on a particular board. For boards with native USB, you may need to modify setup():

void setup() {
  Serial.begin(9600);
  while (!Serial)
    ; // Spin waiting for USB enumeration
}

(but I can't think why that would be different from MPIDE.)

I've merged your cross-posts @furious_rock.

Cross-posting is against the rules of the forum. The reason is that duplicate posts can waste the time of the people trying to help. Someone might spend 15 minutes (or more) writing a detailed answer on this topic, without knowing that someone else already did the same in the other topic.

Repeated cross-posting will result in a suspension from the forum.

In the future, please take some time to pick the forum board that best suits the topic of your question and then only post once to that forum board. This is basic forum etiquette, as explained in the "How to get the best out of this forum" guide you will find at the top of every forum category. It contains a lot of other useful information. Please read it.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

i've had to crosspost because i didn't got any answer. Only after posting again someone answered. So there's that. In case i got any answer don't worry i will update all the post to the answer.

That's not a valid excuse for breaking the forum rules.

Excuse me. I'm trying to get an answer and no one in the entire internet seems to come across the same problem. Please pert if u can help me tell me how.

[SOLVED]
Hi future chipKIT max 32 users.
THE PROBLEM:
MPIDE Serial Monitor Works but Arduino IDE Serial Monitor doesn't.
SOLUTION:
Make sure on Tools->USB Devices->"Custom/Didsabled" is selected.
