Symbol Viewer not working in MCUX 11.0

I just installed MCUX 11.0 and the Symbol Viewer looks like it'd be a cool feature, but it's not working for me.  Here's the error I get:

Could not create the view: com.nxp.symbolbrowser.views.SymbolBrowser

See my previous post about the .map file error - if the symbol viewer is automatically parsing the map file, maybe the two issues are related.

Thanks,

Your issue with the Image Info view should be resolved with MCUXpresso IDE v11.0.1:

Someone should have contacted you off-forum regarding sending files across to us.

However please note that we will probably need more than just your AXF file. If possible, please could you supply your full buildable project that shows up the problem?

It takes some doing - both of the major projects I'm working on have a number of linked folders.  I would really love if the 'resolve external dependencies' feature in the project export was 100% reliable and fixed include folders as well.  I haven't tried it in MCUX 11 yet.  For that matter, if there was a way for a simple flat file to contain includes and links, outside of the project XML file, that would be handy.  I seem to have to reinstall MCUX for one reason or another pretty frequently, and recreate projects, and getting all of that stuff set up takes some time.

Erich should have an older copy of one of the projects, and I sent him the AXF file.

And if I could make a totally frivolous request, having MCUX tested with the DevStyle /  Darkest Dark theme plugin would be nice!  The folks at Genuitec were really helpful when I reported a problem and got the debugger console working, but the pin configuration tool is just barely usable with the theme enabled.  The drop-downs in the memory view are similarly wonky.  Official support might be a bit much to ask for, but I will just say that I find DevStyle to be a nice visual improvement, and I'll hope that maybe someone on the MCUX development team takes a liking to it and starts making some tweaks for their own satisfaction.  :smileywink:

As ConVerse suggests, the old Symbol browser view has indeed been replaced by the new Image Info view. 

Can you clarify what exactly you are doing that triggers the error log you provided? And are you using an old workspace or one created by MCUXpresso IDE v11.0.0. Certainly for new workspaces, the Image Info view should already be displayed by the standard perspectives.

I think I misspoke and it was the Image Info view I was trying to open, but I could be wrong - I may have had the symbol viewer already present in the perspective.  In any case I did try the Image Info view and it wasn't working.

I tried it again a little earlier and did get it to successfully load a project. It looks like a very useful tool and does things I've been having to do with scripts and manual processes.

I tried it again on another project and it's still failing.  It'll cause the system to run at max CPU for a few minutes before it dies with an out of memory error.  I can send you the .axf file but I'll need to do that directly - that's one I can't post here.

Thanks,

Scott

I haven't installed v11.0 yet, but the list of new/changed features says:

  • New "Image Info" View improves and extends on the functionality previously provided by the “Symbols Browser” view, giving the following analysis of a project build:

    • Overall memory usage
    • Content of memory regions

    • Static call graph, including stack usage information

This suggests to me that the Symbol Browser no longer exists, and would explain the error you are getting.  If you are using an old workspace, then it may well still have the Symbol Browser as one of the views.

I suggest you try the image viewer and to reset your perspectives, which should remove the Symbol Browser from the cache.
