there isn't (that i know of) a real step-through functionality, even with SciTE, the way that real time debugging is usually done, is with

Opt("TrayIconDebug",1)

that shows the line being executed as a tooltip if you hover the mouse over the tray icon. Also, you can use messageboxes, or ConsoleWrite() to display values at key points of code. I also use ToolTip() alot to display values or loop counters when i need to really watch values during debugging executions.

I tried using MSgboxes, but I want to avoid anything that changes the focus of any controls.

I will try the suggestion above
