Not in "Ports" serial ports
We're not referring to the STLink in Serial ports, we're referring to what "Serial" is mapped to in the core
And when the user selects to upload via STLink, the build flags are set to enable USB serial
Code: Select all
genericSTM32F103C.menu.upload_method.STLinkMethod.build.upload_flags=-DCONFIG_MAPLE_MINI_NO_DISABLE_DEBUG=1 -DSERIAL_USB -DGENERIC_BOOTLOADER
This is because the normal external STLink dongle does not provide serial (unlike the BMP) - I think the STLink on the Nucleo boards may also show as a USB CDC serial as well as the STLink device, but I've never seen a STLink dongle do this.
