[ADDIN] IdeDebug v0.12

IdeDebug.zip (219.7 KB)

Addin: IdeDebug
Version: 0.12
Date: Friday, 1 February 2013


Toggle QuietMode and Enable IDE Debugging and embed a view for OutputDebugString.


Configuration is found in Tools --> Options --> ClarionAddins --> Ide Debugging.


  • Turn OFF ‘quiet mode’ - this causes error messages to show instead of being written to XLOG files.
  • Generate Extra Debug Information - useful messages when developing addins.
  • List and view XLOG files.
  • Send IDE Debug information to OutputDebugString. Instead of editing the Clarion.exe.config file to do this it is now enabled by this addin on startup!
  • Embed DbgView from SysInternals directly in an IDE Pad! (or you can select your own viewer instead)

INFO: Public Release
FEATURE: Toggle IDE QuietMode on/off

I just tried to read an XLOG file in Clarion 10 via your extension. I double-clicked on a filename, as indicated. The contents show up as garbled.

I will take a look. SV kept messing around with the xlog files because they thought it was some big secret so maybe that changed again.

There are apps other than DebugView that’ll capture the output of OutputDebugString. Can you configure which app you want to use ?
