[cdt-dev] RE: SteppingController question

Ha, we  just tackled this issue in EDC recently.

I didn’t play with StepController, but control it using a delay in reporting IResumedDMEvent for stepping in EDC RunControl service. You may take a look at where “RESUME_NOTIFICATION_DELAY” is used in

        org.eclipse.cdt.debug.edc.internal.services.dsf.RunControl.ExecutionDMC.scheduleResumeEvent()

Subject: [cdt-dev] SteppingController question

 

I like the feature of Eclipse and DSF that if the user steps while debugging the debug view doesn’t update for half a second with an anticipation that the target will be suspended again. The problem is that under some conditions (slow connection to the target) stepping takes around a second and the debug view flickers badly.

 

Do other debuggers experience similar problems?

 

I noticed that half second is a hard coded delay in DSF’s class SteppingController.

Is it possible for a DSF debuggers to be able to customize the stepping controller somehow?

I can open a bugzilla entry so we can discuss there how it can be addressed.
