How do I enable Live View for variables when debugging?

I am working with S32 Design Studio using the S32K144EVB with the OpenSDA debugger.  I am trying to enable Live View for variables, where the variables in the watch window will update while the device is running.  However, I can't seem to find it.  Is there something I need to download or a setting I need to change to enable it?

I did some searching and found this article showing the P&E has a plugin for Eclipse.  I installed the latest PEMicro extension as suggested in the article, but it didn't seem to make any difference.

I used this feature all the time with CodeWarrior, and would like to use it for S32 Design Studio as well.  Any help would be appreciated!

Hello David,

The Real Time Expressions View works with any PEMicro cable including OpenSDA interface.

The Live View feature is documented on pemicro PEMicro Blog 

This view is not opened by default in the Debug perspective and you have to add it manually

Simply Go to menu Window -> "Show View" -> "Other..." and type "Real" into the filter field and select " Real Time Expressions"

The view should appear in the Debug perspective. Now if you add a variable and press "Resume" button (F8 key):

You should observe the variable is being updated.

If it does not work on your side please send us more details.

Thanks!
