Re: [cdt-dev] load and unload symbol file

Hi Marc,


I can open a bug for gdb console. Can this be done generic to support non-gdb too? There is an ISymbolDataChangeDMEvent, can this be use by both gdb and non-gdb? Views would listen to this event and update itself without having to use the Refresh Debug Views button.


Since you mentioned the refresh button, the button is disabled when pressed; I have to select another element in the debug view to have it enabled again. I think this is a bug, do you know whether there is a bugzilla entry for this?


Also, the disassembly view’s refresh button is not integrated with the other debug’s refresh button. Do you think it make sense to have it part of the standard refresh button? If so, I can file a bug for it.

Commands from the gdb console are not all integrated very well.

If there is no gdb event to indicate that something changed, then you need to refresh manually.

Instead of stepping, you could use the Refresh Debug Views button that is part of the

"Debug Update Modes" action set.  Note that not all views have refresh support though.


You can open a bug for the support of this set of gdb commands from the console.

I used the gdb console to unload all symbol files and load new symbol files. The debug view, expressions view, disassembly view doesn’t update. I have to perform an instruction stepping in the debug view, than the debug view and the expressions view will get updated. The disassembly view has to be manually refreshed to get it updated.


Is this a missing feature, or it is expected to have the user manually perform some steps to get the views to update?
