Script debugger recommendation

Post by chrisjj »

Can anyone recommend a tool for debugging (inc. breakpoint code, inspect variables etc.) scripts launched from within MM?

I've tried VBSEdit with MicroSoft Script Debugger - no joy. I see no way to tell it to connect to MM. Here Tools | Running scripts... does not show a script running in MM e.g. waiting at a MsgBox.

As an experiment I put a Stop in an MM script (to see what debugger would be launched) and MM apparently ignored it - no error, no debugger.

Thanks.

No, but I find create debug logfiles works pretty well for me. Especially useful cos you can send them out to other people as well, as many people manage to come up with problems that I can't replicate! :)
Download my scripts at my own MediaMonkey fansite.
All the code for my website and scripts is safely backed up immediately and for free using Dropbox.

I'm looking for a working solution to edit/debug scripts with MM as well.

Could someone please give us the need first steps to start?
Is there any useful (and easy) software out there that we can use?
VBSEdit looks nice, but doesn't seems to work with MM.

Do you know any other working solution with a GUI, breakpoints and set variable values?

Anything new about this?

I want to create some scripts but without debugging the code it is really difficult ...

Well, I frankly use PrimalScript for years, which have its own Debugger in it.

Only thing I add in Scripts while debugging is

Code: Select all

Dim SDB
Set SDB = CreateObject("SongsDB.SDBApplication")

Hi and Thanks for your hint. Only PrimalScript is very expensive to write some small tools ...

I know, I got main license few years ago to do some Freelance job, it was one of the best things they gave me.

If you are into scripting, WEB, programming it is great tool for all.
