Trace Event Log view

This view can display additional details for the events surrounding the cursor in the editor. The additional detail includes the event number, time, class, and type, as well as decoding the data associated with a particular event.

To set the format for event data, select Windows > Preferences , expand QNX, and then select User Events Data.

The following is an example of an event configuration file that has been documented to describe its contents:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

  Root tag for the event definition file format

  Events definitions are broken down by the event class.
  The user event class is '6' (from <trace.h>); all event codes
  in this section are part of this event class.
 <eventclass name="User Events"<

    The user event we want to describe is coded as event #12 within
    the user event class (6).  It is composed of a single 4 byte
    (32 bit) unsigned integer that is followed by a null terminated
    string.  In C the structure might look something like:

     struct event_twelve {
      uint32_t myvalue;
      char     mystring[28];    /* Null Terminated */

    And be emitted using code:

     stuct event_twelve event;
     ... /* Fill event */
     TraceEvent(_NTO_TRACE_INSERTCUSEREVENT, 12, &event, sizeof(event));

  <event sformat="%4u1x myvalue %1s0 mystring" />

    In general an event is described as a serial series of event
    payload definitions:

      %<size><signed><count><format> <label>

        Is the size in bytes (1,2,4,8)
        Is the signed/unsigned attribute of the value (s,u)
        Is the number of items to read (ie an array).  There is a
        special case where if the <size> is 1 and there is _NO_
        format then the <count> can be 0 to accomodate NULL
        terminated strings.
      <format> (optional)
        Is a hint as to how to format this value: d=decimal,
        x=hexadecimal, o=octal, c=character
        Is a string label that can't contain the % character
