The first thing you need to do is install the Microsoft Script Debugger extension for Visual Studio. This can be found here:
Next, open the web page you want to debug in your browser of choice. Go to Tools > Developer Tools or press F12 to open the developer tools window. Select the Scripts tab, then click on Start Debugging.
To start debugging, simply open your solution in Visual Studio and press F5 (or Debug > Start Debugging). This will launch your website in debug mode. Then, set a breakpoint by clicking in the left margin of the code editor next to the line of code you want to break on. Once the breakpoint is set, execution will stop at that line when the code is reached.
You can then use the debugger toolbar to step through the code, examine variables, and so on. For more information on using the Visual Studio debugger, see the Visual Studio documentation.
Next, you can use the “Run” button in the debugger to execute your code one line at a time. This can be helpful if you want to see exactly what’s happening at each step of your code.
Finally, if you want to see all of the variables that are available in your current scope, you can use the “Locals” window. This can be opened by going to View > Other Windows > Locals.
You can also use the console to examine variables and objects in your code. To do this, type “console.log(variable)” or “console.log(object)” into the console and press Enter. The value of the variable or object will be displayed in the debugger window.
If you want to see a list of all the properties and methods of an object, type “console.dir(object)” into the console and press Enter. A list of all the properties and methods of the object will be displayed in the debugger window.
Finally, if you want to clear the debugger window, type “console.clear()” into the console and press Enter. This can be useful if your debugger window is getting cluttered with too many results.
If that doesn’t work, try resetting your Visual Studio settings. This will revert all of your customizations back to the defaults, so be sure to backup any important settings before doing this. To reset your settings, go to ‘Tools > Import and Export Settings…’ and choose the ‘Reset all settings’ option.
What is the Script Explorer?
How do I launch the Script Explorer?
To launch the Script Explorer, open Visual Studio and go to Debug->Windows->Script Explorer. Alternatively, you can press CTRL+ALT+D.
How do I use the Script Explorer?
Once you have launched the Script Explorer, you will see a list of all the files that make up your project. You can expand these files to see their contents, and then double-click on a line of code to set a breakpoint. To start debugging, simply press F5 or go to Debug->Start Debugging.
First, make sure you have the latest version of Visual Studio installed. If you’re not sure, you can check for updates by going to Help > Check for Updates from the menu bar.
If you’re still having trouble, there are a number of community resources that can help, including the Visual Studio forum and Stack Overflow.
If you are still having trouble, try setting a breakpoint on a line of code and then selecting “Debug > Windows > Call Stack” from the Visual Studio menu. This will show you the sequence of function calls that led to the current line of code being executed. This can be helpful in understanding why your code is not behaving as expected.
