4. Debugging modes
Previous pageTable of contentsNext page
Two different modes can be used to debug a WINDEV Mobile application:
  • Debugging in the simulator,
  • Debugging on the mobile device (Windows Mobile only).
Debugging in the simulator
This mode starts the application in a device simulator. However, the application is run by the PC itself in the Windows environment.
This mode is used to quickly debug a new function or to check an algorithm but it presents differences of behavior with the real device:
  • the file paths are the ones of Windows,
  • the character strings are in ANSI format and not in Unicode format,
  • the functions specific to the mobile devices (SMS for example) are not available.
Debugging on the mobile device (Windows Mobile only)
This debug mode allows an operating mode of application that is closer to the real application as the debugger runs the application on the real mobile device. All specific functions can be used (except for the ones that require digitally signed executables)
This mode is slightly slower than the simulator. Indeed, it adds to the execution a communication phase between the development environment and the debugger found on the device.
This mode requires a mobile device connected to the development computer.
