Builds the project in release mode and programs the target device.
Reads the target device to memory. Alternatively, clicking on the small down pointing arrow on the right edge of this button will display a popup menu. The second option, Read Device Memory to File… will allow you to read a device and save the hex file.
Hold in Reset
Unlike the other toolbar buttons, this is a toggle switch. When it is pressed, it will assert the reset line to prevent the target from running. This button is most useful in conjunction with the Program Target button. After programming the target, Hold in Reset may be used to release the target board to run without having to disconnect the programmer.
Build project with debug code (for use with REAL ICE, ICD or PICkit), download program to target device, and release device from reset. The debugger will have full control over the device's operation. See How to work with the debug toolbar for more information on using a debugger.
