Visual TFT integrated

mikroC And Visual TFT In One IDe

Starting from 2016, the mikroC IDE includes Visual TFT – a what-you-see-is-what-you-get graphical user interface design tool. The integrated solution allows for a streamlined workflow.

      • Drag and drop graphic elements while the compiler generates the code automatically in the background.
      • Modify the generated code in the compiler and create event functions.
      • Seamlessly switch between designing and coding using keyboard shortcut F12.

To use your mikroC IDE with the GUI builder, you will need to acquire a Visual TFT license separately.

Seamlessly switch architectures

With mikroC every architecture is instantly familiar

mikroC Switch Anytime

With mikroC you can easily port your code from one architecture to another. This gives you an enormous advantage of being flexible to choose the architecture for your next project.

      • Every mikroC features the same IDE and Integrated Tools.
      • The majority of libraries feature the same function prototypes.

Libraries

Over 600 functions. And still counting.

mikroC Library Manager And Libstock Website

mikroC offers a unique mechanism to easily use libraries in your project: Click on the checkboxes of the libraries you need and they will be instantly available in your code. No need for dozens of #include directives.

You can also install and manage third-party libraries using our package manager and library manager.

IDE

The place where you spend your workday.

MikroElektronika Edit Project

Config words in plain English

mikroC is all about time-saving solutions. There is no need to set configuration bits each time you start a new project. The Edit Project menu gives you a full overview of the entire set of configuration bits in each chip. It’s done in a way that leaves no room for error. Select only among listed options, described in plain English. Edit project includes predefined schemes of oscillator settings for most widely used microcontrollers. Simply load your desired scheme and you are ready to go.

MikroElektronika Code Assistant

Code Assistant

Control-space is probably the most used shortcut among programmers. Why? Because it initiates Code Assistant – a programmer’s first aid kit. No one needs to memorize function names. Focus on your code and let the syntax write itself correctly. Write function calls with one click of your keyboard. The Code assistant in mikroC also suggests correct names of constants, URLs, Active comments and variables. You don’t ever have to get another Syntax error message.

MikroElektronika Parameter Assistant

Parameter Assistant

Many functions. Even more parameters. Was it word, or byte? You don’t have to scroll through the Help file. Just hit CTRL+SHIFT+SPACE and function parameters will be listed for you.

MikroElektronika Active Comments

Don't like comments? Use pictures instead.

In mikroC, any comment can become a multimedia event hook. Add images, files, URLs and assign events to any active comment. A right Mouse Click can open a web browser with a URL. A Mouse Over can display the image. Double Click can open a specified file. This makes comments a much richer reference source for documenting projects. Better comments result in code that is easier to understand and projects that are easier to maintain.

MikroElektronika Project Explorer

Don’t waste your time browsing for examples. Let them come to you. The new Project Explorer window displays all the compiler’s many included examples by default.

To view your projects, point the path to any other folder. A fast recursion-search algorithm will extract all the projects inside. It will display a tree view of your project files up to any depth. A double click opens the project and sets it as active. Easily switch between the projects as often as you want, and you will have a stable RAM memory consumption.

MikroElektronika Advanced Statistics

After you build your project, you can always look under the hood with mikroC Advanced Statistics. This tool gives you a visual overview of all the important information about your project. Take a look at your variables, arrays, and constants and know how much memory your program consumes. See which function calls which in the functions tree window. See how big are your functions and how are they linked in memory. This is important if you want to write your own bootloader.

Your first project

Let's build a USB device in 20 lines of code.

Most compilers demonstrate use LED Blinking as the first project. We have decided to start with something more remarkable: a fully operational USB Human Interface Device in a little over 20 lines of code.

Let us show you how easily mikroC handles complex programs using the power of integrated libraries.

The following PIC C compiler code sample is a simple loop that demonstrates the operation of the USB HID library. It constantly checks for HID packets, and as soon as the HID message arrives, it is transmitted back with the same content.

Examine these lines to see how the HID library deals with a highly complicated task of HID USB communication. mikroC spares you the research of how USB communication works, and encapsulates everything in simple and easy-to-understand functions.

mikroLab kits for a great start

mikroC is the center of entire toolchain

mikroC mikroLab Kits

mikroC is the center of the MikroElektronika toolchain, allowing you to code, compile, program, run, and debug, all within the same environment by just connecting the right development board. mikroLab contains everything a developer needs to explore the possibilities of any of the microcontroller architectures we offer: a development board (with integrated programmer and debugger), the compiler license, an assortment of accessories, and as a bonus, a free license for one of our GUI design tools (either Visual TFT or Visual GLCD).
