Building, Uploading, Running
|Top Previous Next|
Once you are done coding your project it's time to build, upload and run it.
Make sure that the Debug mode is selected in the drop-down on the debug toolbar (View > Debug Toolbar).
You will need this later when I introduce you to Debugging.
At this point...
Now select Debug > Run (or press [F5]).
The project will compile, and the output pane (View > Output) will show errors, if any.
If compilation doesn't yield any errors, TIDE will start uploading the compiled binary onto the target.
The status bar will show you the upload progress (although for this simple app it will probably be instantaneous).
Once the upload finishes, TIDE will instruct your device (or the Simulator) to start executing.
A small green ball will keep moving left and right in the status bar.
This is the debugging heartbeat indicating that your device (or the Simulator) remains accessible to TIDE.
