Hi everyone. My English not well sory.
So far, I have used some of IDE such as Eclipse, Qt Creator that have
code coloring skills. Unfortunately, in the Keil IDE, I did'nt see
any coloring skills. For example in eclipse IDE , there is unused
code coloring dynamically (I always need to use this). As
#if defined(VAL) bla bla bla... // White colored by eclipse
#else bla bla bla... // Gry colored by eclipse IDE
Thus, I trace code three (include files), defined sections,
undefined sections etc with ease. There is any skills or
configuration for Keil IDE?
you should see syntax coloring like shown on this page: www2.keil.com/.../uvision
If not, check your settings under Edit - Configuration. Also, check
this knowledge base article: http://www.keil.com/support/docs/3580.htm
I visited links, watched videos but there is no skills about
unused code area coloring.
I think, KEIL IDE not have this and devolopers sholud add this skill
to KEIL IDE as earliest as possible.
What do you mean by unused code? We do have profiling options
available that will show the coverage and color your code
accordingly. This works in simulation and on real target hardware
with ULINKpro. Please check out <a href="http://www.keil.com/support/man/docs/uv4/uv4_ui_editormarks.htm">editor
marks - code execution</a>.
What do you mean by unused code?
#if defined(VAL) bla bla bla... // White colored by eclipse IDE this code is used
#else bla bla bla... // Gry colored by eclipse IDE this code is unused
It would indeed be great if the Keil IDE editor would gray out
code that is "#ifdef" and not active (like many other IDE's does)
Yes, #if colouring would be fantastic. Definitely one of the most
annoying missing features.
I hope so, KEIL developers intend to develop this. Because, it so
hard to trace preprocessor symbols and undefined areas.
