dev_update_pcdev_update_pcDevUpdatePcdev_update_pcDevUpdatePcDevUpdatePc specifies the behaviour of the PC during program execution. If DisplayModeDisplayModeDisplayModeDisplayModeDisplayModedisplayMode is set to VarRef('on'), which is the default, within the selected procedure the PC is always displayed left to the currently executed operator. In addition the program text is scrolled---if necessary---so that the current operator is visible.

If the mode is 'off'"off""off""off""off""off" the PC is not visible during program execution and the program text will not be scrolled automatically. When the program stops the PC becomes visible again and the listing is scrolled to the current PC position.

For this the operators dev_update_pcdev_update_pcDevUpdatePcdev_update_pcDevUpdatePcDevUpdatePc, dev_update_timedev_update_timeDevUpdateTimedev_update_timeDevUpdateTimeDevUpdateTime, dev_update_vardev_update_varDevUpdateVardev_update_varDevUpdateVarDevUpdateVar, and dev_update_windowdev_update_windowDevUpdateWindowdev_update_windowDevUpdateWindowDevUpdateWindow or the procedures dev_update_on and dev_update_off can be used.

This option can also be controlled via the Preferences dialog: Edit -> Preferences -> Runtime Settings -> Update Program Counter.
