Internet Explorer Debugging

Post by danh2000 » Fri Aug 29, 2008 3:56 am

Firstly, The newest release looks great - it's really only the debugging that's keeping me using Aptana at the moment.

The code assist in Spket is far better than Aptana's - Good Job.

Anyway, I tried using the newest version to debug in IE:

My first attempt it displayed the current pages and files in the Debug Explorer but didn't stop at my breakpoint..

I closed down and tried again, but now even after restarting Eclipse and Internet Explorer I get the following error:

Unable connect to debugger...

Can you provide any advice?

Thanks in advance,

Dan

Currently the IE debugger is not very stable, I will improve it in next version.

Hi all,
I´m using Spket Version 1.6.17 and I´m trying to evaluate the debugging feature for javascript. The configuration is according the manual...but I did not get it working. Spket starts the IE (8), but there is a message box "Problem Occurred": "Unable to connect to debugger..."
What is my mistake ? :) Is it a bug ? Can Spket connect to other debuggers like Firebug for example ?

Thanx for your help !
Rob

Do you have Microsoft Script Debugger installed, you can check it using http://www.agpad.com/downloads/checker.exe . and is there any error in logs file?currently Spket is not able to connect to Firebug.

Hi,
the "checker.exe" says:"Machine Debug Manager installed", so I think, Microsoft Script Debugger is installed.
The log file entries are like that:
--------
!ENTRY com.spket.js.debug 4 4 2009-10-01 09:17:24.627
!MESSAGE Unable connect to debugger...
--------

Maybe these facts are interesting:
- I am using IE 8
- I am using Qooxdoo toolkit (btw: code completion works great ! :-))

Is it possible, that there are any security settings of IE which deny to connect the debugger interface ?

Thanx again !

I don't have IE8 installed, so I'm not sure, but IE8 has a built-in JScript debugger, maybe you should try: http://blogs.msdn.com/jscript/archive/2 ... rer-8.aspx
