Use "Build -> Run" to execute something else
« on: November 09, 2015, 12:06:25 am »
Hi all,

I've got Codeblocks configured with SDCC, along side the STM8 series of microcontrollers. I can compile and link fine along with generate the .hex file required. Currently, I have the .hex file being uploaded to the STM8 after the build process has completed. What I'm wondering is can I change what the Build->Run command does to instead of trying to execute the program in windows, execute the ST uploader from command line and upload to the microcontroller?

Thanks,
Harris

You can do this using a post build step or using a tool.
You can probably setup another commands only target to do this.

Or use the Toolsplus plugin to define custom commands to program your microcontroller or execute the code etc...

Aha! I didn't know such a thing existed. I've now created a Toolsplus macro.

Thank you all for your replies!

You might be able to create a new compiler profile for it too. That would make the build, run etc buttons work like normal for your micro.

settings->compiler and then click on copy, name it whatever and then just edit the directory and toolchain executables to whatever your microcontroller software needs.
