Modifying and Capturing Variables using DMCI

To use the Data Monitor & Control Interface (DMCI) to modify and capture data values during a debug session, follow these steps:


Ensure the DMCI Plugin is Installed


Select the Hardware Tool for the Project

Open the Project Properties window for the application being debugged. Select either the ICD3, or MPLAB® REAL-ICE™ as the hardware tool.


Start the Debug Session

Start the debug session by clicking on the Debug Icon Main_Debug_Project.png. This will cause the project to build, allowing the DMCI to identify all the application variables.


Pause the Debug Session

Pause the debug session with either a breakpoint Window_Debugging_Breakpoints.png, halt-on-main, or a manual pause Debug_Pause.png.


Open the DMCI Window

From the main IDE menu select Tools ► Embedded ►DMCI ► DMCI Window



Select Variable(s) for DMCI Control
