I am having some success with gadgeteer and am now using the extender module on
socket #9 to output analog to a voltmeter. My program uses a button to toggle 0 v to 3.3 v.
I was successful in running under debug, then I deployed a release build
which seems to have downloaded my application to the firmware as now it runs
by itself (ie unplug the usb , power off, back on and it runs.)
This is all good, but now I am having difficulty going back to run it under debug!
Now, I wanted to change the program to use the GT timer to periodically step up the voltage till 3.3 then go back down. I think I know how to use the timer ok and have it
send the event but -
The problem is that I don’t really understand how the deploying/erasing/writing firmware
works on this platform.
From vstudio, I rebuilt the solution, cleaned it, deployed it, but nothing puts me back where I can debug it.
It seems as if it is still just running the previous program I had deployed. I think probably
if I start a new project, this may work, but I don’t want to start another project, I just want to make some changes, debug and redeploy (preferably just from VStudio).
I looked at FEZConfig too, but there is no documentation I can see that explains how to use the Deployment(Advanced) feature. For example, there is a button to erase application but if I press it, it asks if I’m sure I want to delete the managed application (what is that??). I just want to erase the firmware (I think) and go back to debugging my new changes, then redeploy my changes.
Can someone explain how I should be doing this ?
