when I started with javascript I used alert to get variables displayed. Now
a days
I build in ... console.log('cache: ' + require.cache) in my code. The
value is then
display in the console in google tools.

There is another nice feature, alert wil give you [object object] if you
tries to display
an object (array or object) but console.log(myObj) will give you what is in
the object.

You may even use console.log(JSON.stringify(myObj, null, '\t')) to display
an object
in well formed JSON

console.log also won't stop processing of the script so the users dosn't
notice other
than if put into a large loop it will slow the page down.

Henrik,

Many thanks. I can see the HTML and Javascript that I generate but as soon
as I try to do anything, Chrome demands that I use Ctl+P to open a file.
The variable that I wish to watch is not in any file - it is generated by
my system.

Is there no one else using CGIDEV and generated HTML/Javascript that has
had a similar problem?

If you call the CGI program from Crome and developer-tools active while
you
call the page
(start it with F12 just before you activate the page) you are able to see
what is sent to the
browser under "network" - click on any of the links and the will be both
the header and
what is received.

Keith,

Many thanks but I generate the HTML and Javascript - it isn't stored
anywhere. I am using CGIDEV2 and the stored HTML is only very basic,
most
of it, including the <script> statement, being generated by my system.
This
allows great flexibility. I don't see how to get into debug mode.

Hi Rob,
You could make a temporary test version of your setup.

Assuming the html is in IFS then copy your runtime source to a .js
file
there. Make sure you include a <script > reference to your temp file
in
the
html then it should appear in chrome debug.

Regards

Keith
