Build Automatically before running

Post by IanFinlayson » Mon Jan 27, 2014 11:39 pm

Hello, I am using CodeLite in a C++ course that I am teaching, and many of my students are forgetting to build their project before they hit run. I do it too on occasion, but many of them spend a long time debugging stale versions of their code. Is there a way to have CodeLite automatically rebuild programs before running them? Or at least prompt asking if they would like to build first?

Thanks in advance!

No. This option is only available before debugging (F5)
