What about breakpoints? ...

6 posts in this topic

Is there a way to set breakpoints in the SciTE editor and walk through my code?

Thanks again!

There is no way to walk through the code other than using a debugger you can find one here that will do what you're looking to do.

Other than that you'd need to just put in a lot of debug lines and watch the Console output from SciTE.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

No, there is not. You've been spoiled by Microsoft forever. Your favoritism has crippled your programming skills to the point of not being useful to anyone, only left you to be shunned forever in all of corporate life until eventually you fall into disarray and social security. Sitting there, days on end with a thumb in your mouth, longing for those days where you could F10 and things would reveal themselves to you one step at a time.

Oh wait, Not sure if it works with the recent versions though.

That's good, thanks. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing some obvious functionality. :-)

Speedmaster,

There are no "official" walk-through debuggers. There are some scripts in the Examples section, but I found problems running them in Vista+ because of the additional process security. So I tend to go with inserting ConsoleWrite and MsgBox manually at the appropriate points. :)

If you use the full SciTE4AutoIt3 installation (and if not you can download it from here - lots of extras to help coding with AutoIt) there are a number of other things you can do - like adding trace lines. You can even use the AutoIt3Wrapper directive #AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_Debug_Mode to show every line run by the script - I find it too much of an overkill, but you might not.

I hope this helps. :)
