[SOLVED] Plotting variables as a graph feature, name auto-completion feature available on SES 3?

Hi, I'm Matthew. I use

- 64-bit SES 3.26 on 64-bit Windows 10

- J-Link Plus or onboard J-Link (Nordic's dev kits have a J-Link on the board itself)

- J-Link 6.16h

- Nordic's PCA10040 v1.1.1 board (this board uses nRF52832-QFAA MCU)

- STM32F4 Discovery board

- TI's TM4C123GXL board

I'm trying to migrate to SEGGER ES. I used IAR EWARM, Keil MDK, TI's CCS 7 in the past.

CCS provided a graph plotting feature (workshop book page 195) ;

-link, FPU workshop video

-link, graph video demo using MSP430

After selecting a memory region and choosing the data type (32-bit float, int, etc), CCS plots a graph.

1. I think this is a great feature, especially when checking ADC values using a graph.

Does SES 3 provide a similar feature like this?


2. If not, how can I dump a memory region in binary/float/int/etc type?

If this feature not available, I think an alternative way is to dump values and plot it using Matlab or something.

3. Lastly, is there an auto-completion feature in SES 3?

For instance, Keil MDK provides a Code Completion feature .

After typing 2 or more words, I hope SES to suggest a function name or struct/union member name.

Is this possible? Do I need a keyboard shortcut to do this?


-Best Regards

P.S.) If the graph features not available, I wish to suggest this feature, please! :D

Hello Matthew,

Thank you for you inquiry.

Not directly in ES but you have two options here:

1. Either use Ozone and "Data Graph" window.
2. Use our external visualization tool J-Scope that can run in parallel to ES: https://www.segger.com/products/debug-pr…/tools/j-scope/

Wow, thanks for your reply, Nino!

Can you answer the auto-completing feature, which was written in my original question?

Hi Matthew,

Sorry i missed that question.
Yes we have a auto-completion feature which requires no configuration from your side. Just make sure the function/variable etc. you want to autocomplete is included in the file you are editing currently.

Best regards,
Nino

Hi, Nino. I see.

I wrote that question because the auto-completing tab didn't appear when I was typing #define MACROs in the SES editor or I waited quite awhile to let SES auto-complete it.

I will take an eye on that. Thanks for your reply. Case solved!

If I have trouble using the "data graph" feature from SEGGER's Ozone, I will post another question thread.

-Best Regards

Under some weird circumstances auto complete will not function properly. Usually restarting ES already fixes that problem for most users. Should you find a solid reproduction scenario we would appreciate to hear it so we can figure out where this quirk is coming from.

Alright do that.
