It is good practice to add version number (e.g. name_v0_0). But you can change the name later. Just right-click component name in the Project Explorer panel and Rename the component, including this "_v0_0".
Thank you, I was confused by the screen captures not showing version.
Another silly question. I am creating a firmware only component. I have the symbol created with a catalog location, and the .c/.h API files. It does not show in the catalog pane in the test project. For it to show in the catalog, I had to add an schematic with a pin. I do have the "show hidden" in options.
What is the trick to force it to place in catalog ?
Check "\" symbols in the catalog placement root (symbol->properties->collection). Post project bundle for review (File->Create project bundle->Minimal).1 of 1 people found this helpful
I got past that one. In all the trial attempts I created a new workspace with library and test project but forgot to add the lib dependency.
Now looking for next hurdle :-)
I have my first useful component working !!! It provides the ability to put trace entries on a port for a logic analyzer. I developed the actual code inline as part of a project I was debugging. Then it occurred to me that it would be good to make a component out of it.
Thank you Odissey
