Is it possible to change the display format of the registers like you can for variables? Some are in hex, most are in decimal. Hex would be better for me right now...

Window->Preferences->C/C++->Debug

In "Opened view default settings" change "Default register format:" to
"Hexadecimal".

Should probably do it if you want it to be default.

Also, if you right click on the register value, the context menu has a
"Format" option where you can set it to Hexadecimal.

Hello,

I would like to reopen this topic. I use Eclipse for ARM development. My version is
Version: Indigo Release
Build id: 20110615-0604
and CDT version 201106081058

I tried what people had recommended here but without success. Screen-shot is attached. I even have no right-click menu with "Format" option on the registers' values.

Can anybody help me what is wrong?

Thank you in advance.

Hi Missing name

Version: Indigo Service Release 2
Build id: 20120216-1857
CDT: 8.0.2.201202111925

It's probably quite new software because I downloaded all stuff few days ago.
No hexadecimal display is very anoying...

Szymon

I have the exact same problem with the version of Eclipse used in the CodeSourcery CodeBench release (with CDT 8.1.0.394665) - preferences setting appears not to work very well - some registers now in hex, but seemingly according to some attempt to "intelligently" decide how to display them - and, more annoyingly, no right-click context menu "format" option (this option has been present on other Eclipse spins, such as CCS).

Anyone had this problem who knows how to fix it - in particular, how to recover the context menu "format" functionality?

Thanks!

- Carl

Answering my own "me too", which hasn't cleared moderation yet: turns out the CodeSourcery version, at least, has an inconspicuous down-facing-triangle drop-down menu icon third from the right in the button bar of the variable/register/breakpoint pane, between the "minimize" and "pin to debug" items. This has two sub-menus, Layout and Number Format. Number Format in this menu actually works (unlike the one in the Window...Preferences...C/C++...Debug pane.)

index.php/fa/12678/0/

It changes all the registers, or variables, or whatever, but in the absence of the context menu "format" item, it at least saves a measure of frustration.
