Status Bar Activity Indicators

The status bar is located on the bottom of the MPLAB® X IDE and provides you with up-to-date information on the status of your MPLAB session. The status bar below, for example, indicates that a debug session for "TestProject" is currently running.


If you halt at a breakpoint or you pause the debug session, the status bar will look like this:


When there aren't any debug sessions running, the only information you will see includes the cursor position and MPLAB X notifications.


If you hover over the notifications icon, you will see a tooltip that provides a little bit more information.


If you click on the notifications icon, the Notifications window will open and will provide you with the priority, date, and category of the message.


If you click on the cursor location numbers, you will see the Go To Line or Bookmark window pop up. You can then type in the line number that you are interested in and the cursor will jump to that location in the Editor window.
