E.4.1. Column resizing

When using the Code window, the following views use two columns to display debug data:


You cannot change the size of columns in the Resource Viewer.

To make the display easier to read, you can change the size of the first column using a new menu option available only on Red Hat Linux:

  1. Select Target → Reload Image to Target from the Code window main menu to reload the image dhrystone.axf.

  2. Click the Locate PC button on the Debug toolbar to view the source file dhry_1.c.

  3. Set a simple breakpoint by double-clicking on line 183.

  4. Click Run to start execution.

  5. Enter 5000 when asked for the number of runs.

    The program starts and then stops when execution reaches the breakpoint at line 183. The red box marks the location of the Program Counter (PC) when execution stops.

  6. If you do not have a Watch view visible, select View → Watch from the Code window main menu to open the Watch view.

  7. Right-click somewhere in the header columns to display the context menu, shown in Figure E.1.
