ModusToolbox General

Esteemed Contributor

Hi,

I have questions about items of run menu in ModusToolbox2.1 IDE.

Could you let me know how I use "Use Step Filters" and "Step into Selection" at debugging?

I am using PSoC6 CY8CKIT-062-BLE.

Thanks,

Kenshow

Yes, I was able to reproduce your issue. The features "Step into Selection", "Step filters" are all Java debugging options, but I expected it to be available for C/C++ as well. When I checked the Windows > Preferences > Debug options, there is no mention of Step Filtering method.

You can see these options available when you are debugging Java code on Native Eclipse.

So, in summary, I don't think these debugging options are supported. Even though the Debug perspective brings up those options, they aren't implemented and hence the error.

Hope this helps

Kenshow,

I did not find any info about "Step Filters" on the Cypress community Forums.

I did find this information on the internet about the Eclipse Step Filters:  Help - Eclipse Platform https://help.eclipse.org/2020-03/index.jsp?topic=%2Forg.eclipse.jdt.doc.user%2Freference%2Fviews%2Fd...

Maybe this can answer your question.

Hi all,

 I could not these step facilities.

 Can these debug step functions "Use step filter", "Step into selection", and "Drop To Frame" in eclipse be used in Modus Toolbox?

Thanks,

Hello Kenshow,

Note that these options are not available under Run tab in the ModusToolbox perspective. You will need to change to Eclipse Debug perspective by clicking this icon:

Once opened choose the Debug Perspective and then click Open.

Now you will be able to see the options in the Run tab.

Hi Dheeraj,

The debug perspective highlights "Step Into Selection" only, not "Use step filter", and "Drop To Frame".

And, I met a problem when use "Step Into Selection" on debug perspective as follows:

Can these features that are often found in Java debugging be used in the C/C++ debugger?

Thanks,
