View > VxWorks Tasks


The view shows names and additional information about all currently existing tasks the VxWorks* kernel knows about. After adding tasks to the task watchlist the added tasks will be shown at the top of the list. When a task is started the target will be halted if Break at init function of selected task option is selected from the context menu. The view is updated automatically when new tasks are created. Alternatively, you can use the command VX "SHOW TASKS" to display the information in the Console window.
