DVT VHDL IDE User Guide
Rev. 20.1.13, 22 May 2020
External builders are automatically invoked after the DVT builder. For example when requesting to build or rebuild the project, when saving etc. Obviously if the command is empty for a specific phase (full, clean or auto), the builder is not invoked.
You can also explicitly invoke only the external builders from the dedicated button ..
The focus must be on some editor in the project or a resource from the project should be selected.
If you have multiple external builders defined for a project, you can invoke a specific one by clicking on the respective entry in the menu:
NOTE: When invoking only one builder, a Clean Project operation that removes all errors from all external builders is also triggered.
