CLion 2018.2 Help

Running Applications

CLion enables running entire applications as well as unit tests.

CLion makes use of the settings defined in a Run/Debug Configuration. All the run configurations that exist in a project, are available in the Select Run/Debug Configuration drop-down list.

If you want to see the list of all currently running applications, select Run | Show Running List from the main menu.

Note that after you've started a run session, the icons toolwindows toolWindowRun svg icon that marks the Run tool window and in the Run/Debug Configuration Selector toggles to active run icon to indicate that the run process is active.

  • Do one of the following:
    • In the left gutter, click the icon run from left gutter icon, and choose the desired command.

      • Click icons toolwindows toolWindowRun svg.

      • Press Shift+F10.

    • Press Shift+Alt+F10, select the desired run configuration from the pop-up menu, and press Enter.

    This pop-up menu can also be quickly accessed by pressing F9, when you're not running any debug session.
