winIDEA can periodically update information on the desktop.

Debug Options dialog, Update page



Real-time Access

On emulators with real-time access capabilities, watch expressions on real-time panes of the Watch window can be updated periodically in real-time.

Update when running - winIDEA will update expressions when the CPU is running.

Update when stopped - winIDEA will update expressions when the CPU is stopped.

Note: when CPU stops, all debug windows are refreshed automatically. ‘Update when stopped’ should only be used if background interrupts are serviced, otherwise this option only degrades performance.


Update Period - determines the time interval in which winIDEA updates real-time watches.


Monitor Access

Accessing memory using debug monitor gives access to all memory available to the CPU, the CPU must however be stopped for this purpose.

WinIDEA can update all configured update targets when

the CPU is running,

when the CPU is stopped

when a conditional breakpoint's condition is evaluated to zero.

Note: when CPU stops, all debug windows are refreshed automatically. ‘Update when stopped’ should only be used if background interrupts are serviced, otherwise this option only degrades performance.


Update Period - determines the time interval at which the selected update targets are updated.


Update Target

defines the desktop information that is to be updated. This can be:

expressions in the watch window

currently open memory windows

the register pane of the disassembly window

the SFR window's expanded registers

operating system window
