Your page https://visualgdb.com/tutorials/arm/livevars/ says that you can use Live Variables with OpenOCD. I am using the ESP32 with an Omilex ARM-USB-OCD-H. The VisualGDB properties say that the selected debug method supports live variables; but the menu item Debug->Windows->Live variables is not present. Is there something I have to do to enable the menu item? Attachments:You must be logged in to view attached files. June 9, 2021 at 07:06 #30652 supportKeymaster Hi, The Live Variables (renamed to Live Watch in v5.4) and other live functionality only works for targets that support reading the memory without stopping the CPU. This includes most new ARM devices and RISC-V devices, but not ESP32 or ESP8266. June 9, 2021 at 16:46 #30671 chrisalfredParticipant Is there anyway to debug the FreeRTOS heap within VisualGDB? Even if only when pausing debugging. June 9, 2021 at 16:50 #30672 supportKeymaster Sorry, this is only officially supported for the ARM devices. You could try extracting the heap parsing logic from our FreeRTOS plugin and creating a custom expression visualizer based on it, but it will involve non-trivial coding.
