4. Debugging modes
Previous pageTable of contentsNext page
There are two modes for debugging a WINDEV Mobile application:
  • Debugging in the simulator,
  • Debugging on the mobile device (available in Android and iOS).
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 may have a different behavior compared with the actual device:
  • file paths are those used by Windows,
  • strings are in ANSI format by default (not Unicode),
  • the functions specific to mobile devices (e.g. SMS) are not available.
Debugging on the mobile device
This debug mode allows for a more accurate application behavior, since the debugger runs the application on the actual mobile device (Android and iOS). 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.
