JetBrains Rider 2021.1 Help

Set command line arguments

The EzArgs plugin provides a convenient way for passing arguments to C++ run/debug configurations by writing them in a dedicated box on the toolbar.

The specified options are used for the current project when running a debugging session, just like the command line arguments set through the project properties.

Enter the arguments in the text box or choose recent arguments from the dropdown list.

You can install the EzArgs plugin from the plugin repository (Marketplace) or from a local archive file (ZIP or JAR).

Install plugin from repository

  1. In the Settings/Preferences dialog Ctrl+Alt+S, select Plugins.

  2. Find the plugin in the Marketplace and click Install.

To install a specific version, go to the plugin page in the JetBrains Plugin Repository, download and install it as described in Install plugin from disk. For example, you can do it if the most recent version of the plugin is broken.

  1. In the Settings/Preferences dialog Ctrl+Alt+S, select Plugins.

  2. On the Plugins page, click The Settings button and then click Install Plugin from Disk.

  3. Select the plugin archive file and click OK.

  4. Click OK to apply the changes and restart the IDE if prompted.
