Hi,
it would be very useful a feature for which once the debug session is terminated (tipically when pressing the red square button) the perspective will automatically switch to C/C++ view.

Thank you.

  • I'm not sure it is ok to automatically switch to another perspective, maybe you need to inspect the trace outputs (swv or semihosting).

    and, in fact, it is just one click away.

     
  • yes and also if u look around, there are many developers asking to eclipse.org to implement this feature. Thank you.

     
    • so this should be a general feature, not plug-in specific. we'll probably wait for it to be implemented in cdt.

       
  • Ok that's all right.
    Just for your information, I am trying the Atollic TrueStudio IDE, Eclipse based, and I noticed they have implemented this feature which is effectively quite handy.

    Thank you.

     
    • do they have a special swv/semihosting console shown only in the Debugging view?
